Tomorrow: NJLM Hosting Opioid Settlement Webinar
Tomorrow, December 9, at Noon, the League will be hosting an informational webinar with speakers from the State Attorney General’s office along with the Governor’s office and others to discuss the National Opioid Settlement.
As you may know, the total amount of settlement funds allocated to each state is dependent upon the number of counties and municipalities that agree to participate. Greater participation from local governments triggers additional settlement funding being distributed to the state. You do not need to have filed a lawsuit to be part of the settlement, to participate. However, the deadline to participate is fast approaching–electronic settlement registration must be completed before January 2, 2022.
The League webinar will provide additional information on the settlement and what New Jersey municipalities need to do to ensure our state receives the most available settlement funds. Please register for the webinar on the League’s website.
