INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana’s attorney general says the state will receive more than $12.5 million as part of a multistate settlement with a consulting firm that worked with opioid manufacturers to promote addictive painkillers.

Attorney General Todd Rokita said Thursday that Indiana’s share of McKinsey & Company’s $573 million settlement with 47 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories will total  $12,579,158.

It’s the first multistate opioid settlement to result in a substantial payout to states.
