Many of Ohio’s local governments appear satisfied with an “all-Ohio” proposal that would award them a 30% cut of the money from a potential multi-billion dollar settlement with the drug industry over the deadly opioid epidemic.

Based on a hypothetical $1 billion settlement share for local governments and per-capital local opioid deaths, the state estimates Guernsey County would receive $2.6 million and Cambridge would get $607,525 to fight and treat opioid abuse.
