Vermont will get $36.4 million from a settlement with Purdue Pharma and the Sackler family.

Vermont will get $36.4 million from a settlement with Purdue Pharma and the Sackler family. That’s about three times as much as the original settlement. And the state could get another $1.4 million if some conditions are met.
