|Budget Issue:||Law enforcement grants to cities|
|Program:||Board of State and Community Corrections|
|Finding or Recommendation:||Reject the Governor’s January budget proposal to augment the police grants program by $7.5 million due to lack of justification. Approve the proposed change to provisional language which would clarify that all cities, including those that contract for police services, are eligible to receive a share of the grant funds.|
