I am appalled and very saddened to read of the Legislature's decision to drastically reduce funding to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence for treatment assessment of alcohol-related offenders, prevention grants, and the Alcohol Safety Action Program in Juneau schools. Not only will the people who have the disease of alcoholism and drug dependence suffer, but so will our young people of Juneau, and our community as a whole.
To those legislators and the governor who approved these cuts: Shame on you!
