Chautauqua County could wind up with as much as $30 million, or nearly one-fifth of its annual budget, as part of the state's share of the federal tobacco settlement, Finance Director Robert Beckman told the Legislature's Administrative Services Committee Tuesday.

Committee Chairwoman Jane Fagerstrom, D-Jamestown, said the county will receive at least $2.3 million next June 1 and $2.9 million in each of the 20 years after that.

Lawmakers will decide later, she said, on how to use the money.
