Boone County Community Hopeful Opioid Settlement Dollars Will Bring Recovery, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, West Virginia expects to receive about $1 billion of opioid settlement money. The money can go to programs to help abate the opioid crisis. Leaders of one recovery organization hope to use some of that money to help their rural community recover from the crisis. Briana Heaney has the story.

Also, in this show, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., announced last week he won’t be running for reelection to the United States Senate. As Curtis Tate reports, he’s leaving the chamber on both low and high notes.
