Interior legislators succeeded in adding a $20,000 appropriation for the Community Service Patrol to the State of Alaska’s Capital budget.  The budget advances to Governor Parnell, who has until May 4 to sign or veto the budget.

Please send a form letter by email to Governor Sean Parnell  to encourage him to sustain the CSP appropriation in the state’s budget.

This first-ever legislative appropriation for the CSP is roughly 12% of the CSP’s annual operating budget.  Perhaps more importantly, state dollars will help support the CSP’s efforts to fulfill a state requirement:  that intoxicated and inebriated people in public places be taken into protective custody and transported to an appropriate point of care.
