GF commissioners accuse state AG of moving the gold post
Great Falls City Commissioners are accusing State Attorney General Austin Knudsen of changing an agreed to plan from last year on how money from a settlement with three major pharmaceutical companies was to be handed out in the state. City Attorney Jeff Hindoien told commissioners this week that the city had agreed to a plan with the AG last year but the AG has now come back with a new proposed plan.
Mayor Bob Kelly says this just another delay and he called the new proposal from Knudsen disturbing.
In February Attorney General Austin Knudsen announced that Montana would be getting $80,000,000 in a multi-state settlement with the three pharmaceutical companies, Cardinal McKesson, AmerisourceBergen and Johnson and Johnson.
City commissioners indicated this week, that they would take the issue to court if Knudsen's office does not go back to the original agreement.
