ALBANY (WENY) – New York Attorney General Letitia James is proposing a $26 billion agreement to give relief to those struggling with opioid addiction.

According to the AG’s website, the move would resolve claims against some of the nation’s biggest opioid distributors over their roles in creating and fueling the opioid epidemic.

New York communities that have been affected will get up to $1.5 billion to fund prevention, treatment, and recovery programs.

The agreement also requires industry changes aimed at ending the opioid epidemic all together and preventing anything like it from happening again.
