West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey hosted a roundtable event in the Vienna City Council Chambers.
Citizens and public servants from Wood County had the opportunity to share their thoughts and concerns with the attorney general.
Though Morrisey touched on the issue of Medicaid fraud, the primary topic of discussion was the use of the opioid settlement funds that will soon be disbursed to the state of West Virginia. Morrisey spoke about the West Virginia Frist Foundation, the nonprofit created to manage 72.5% of the settlement funds. Morrisey said the board of of the Foundation will consist of six representatives from the different regions of West Virginia, as well as five additional members appointed by the governor and approved by the state legislature.
