Lawsuit settlements are pumping nearly $64 million into the Mississippi budget.
Attorney General Jim Hood said that he's sending nearly $53 million to the general fund, which is the largest part of the state budget, and $11 million to the state employees' health insurance plan.
The announcement comes as lawmakers are entering the final weeks of writing a $6 billion budget for fiscal 2015, which begins July 1.
The state sued GlaxoSmithKline over claims the company made about the diabetes drug, Avandia. That settlement is bringing $25.2 million.
The state is collecting $22.5 million in a price-fixing case against BASF, a German company that makes vitamins.
Hood says he's asking lawmakers to spend some money for counseling and other programs to help departing prisoners re-enter the free world.
Hood's office says the breakdown of the money is as follows:
-GlaxoSmithKline, LLC (Avandia): $25,219,368.42
-BASF Corporation et al (vitamin litigation): $22,509,978.76
-LCD litigation: $3,844,417.09
