Alaska - Boy Scouts, Military, ROTC Allowed in Schools
Juneau - April 20, 2007 - The Senate today inserted conditional language into the
operating budget that ensures that the Boy Scouts, military and federal
recruiters, and ROTC programs will continue to have access to public
schools in Alaska.
"In other states, school boards have banned some or all of
these organizations from access to or use of public school buildings on
a variety of philosophical grounds. To my knowledge this has not been an
issue in Alaska yet. I believe it has been a topic of discussion at the
school board level, but no actions have been taken. This qualifying
budget language was in last year's budget and I believe it
was left out inadvertently last year. The amendment was accepted
unanimously," said amendment author Sen. Fred Dyson, R-Eagle
Sen. Dyson said he was pleased that the majority coalition recognized
the value of this policy position and the widespread support amongst
Alaskans for ROTC, the Boy Scouts, and service in the military and
various federal law enforcement agencies.
