Montgomery County Commission votes to join One Ohio Initiative opioid settlement efforts


DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Montgomery County Commission voted at a special meeting Thursday to join the One Ohio Initiative.

The initiative seeks to settle all opioid lawsuits across Ohio in one offer.

Local jurisdictions across the state are currently involved in lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies they believe are responsible for pushing millions of pills into their communities, creating an opioid epidemic. One Ohio would consolidate those lawsuits into one joint-statewide effort.
