Bello Proposes Trust Fund for Opioid Deal Money

Ransomware attack before holiday leaves companies scrambling

Bello said he wants to avoid a situation where the incoming settlement money is used for purposes unrelated to addiction services, which he said happened several years ago after a national settlement with tobacco companies. “What this money will do is help fund the innovative and effective public health approaches our addiction requires,” said Bello. “This money, which comes from the companies who have hurt so many families, neighborhoods and communities all across our country, must be used to help people. We must guarantee that this money is not spent in any other way.”

Bello says the county legislature will consider his proposal at its meeting on Tuesday evening. Bello said he wants to make sure whatever settlement money comes to the county is targeted toward a specific purpose.
