As best that I understand it, the New York State Attorney General receives legal settlements involving opioid makers and distributors, companies accused of wage theft & Medicaid fraud, and so on (as well as from a charity her office shut down). The amounts exceed $2 billion.

As this money is owed to New York State, why isn't it deposited in the New York State treasury for the Legislature to spend as it sees fit?

@gollum,
Who do you think sets up the spending if not the legislature? Not a NY resident, but is the distribution of funds controlled by the Opioid Stewardship Act passed by the legislature? I saw there is a Settlement Board set up to advise the legislature about how to spend the money as well. You might want to ask your state senator about this if you want more information.
