Connecticut to receive $300 million as part of massive opioid settlement

Connecticut will be receiving $300 million over the next 18 years as part of a massive opioid settlement reached Wednesday.
Attorney General William Tong says 15% will be funneled directly to local cities and towns.
The rest will be used for state prevention, treatment and recovery programs.
This settlement does not involve Stamford-based Perdue Pharma, which is still negotiating an even bigger settlement with nearly all 50 states.
