Church expenditures should be vetoed

Posted: Sunday, April 20, 2008

The U.S. Supreme Court has, on more than one occasion, ruled against public money being spent on church-related projects.

I see in the Anchorage Daily News a report on the capital budget that funds have been appropriated to two projects that are not appropriate: YMCA at $850,000 and Covenant House at $4 million.

There may be more since the news article just touched on a few of the appropriations. If allowed to remain in the capital budget, these two and more, if necessary, will be challenged.

I respectfully request that these two and indeed any other appropriations that are unconstitutional be vetoed. It is a waste of public time and money to have to challenge any such expenditures.
