01 "An Act relating to grants for alcoholism and drug abuse programs; and providing for                                    
02 an effective date."                                                                                                     
03 BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF ALASKA:                                                                
04    * Section 1.  AS 47.30.475(c) is amended to read:                                                                  
05            (c)  Grants shall be awarded in a ratio of 75 [90] percent state money to 25 [10]                    
06       percent community money for the costs of providing staff and limited improvement,                                 
07       renovation, or new construction of facilities for alcohol or drug detoxification,                                 
08       rehabilitation, or "half-way house" care.  The department may waive all or part of the                            
09       requirement that state money be matched by community money if the department                                      
10       finds that community money is unavailable and waiver of the requirement is in the                                 
11       best interests of the state.  A grant for improving, renovating, or constructing may not                          
12       exceed $50,000 except when there is a lack of applicants for available money and then                             
13       only with the approval of the Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse.  The                                   
14       department is not required to award all money available under this program, or the full                           
01       percentages specified in this subsection, when another source of money is available or                            
02       could reasonably be made available to the applicant.                                                              
03    * Sec. 2.  The uncodified law of the State of Alaska is amended by adding a new section to                         
04 read:                                                                                                                   
05       TRANSITION.  Notwithstanding AS 47.30.475(c), as amended by sec. 1 of this Act,
