Dear Lord and Father of us all: Before You we bow                             
in awe and adoration. You have scooped out the                                 
hollows of the sea. You have stacked the frowning                              
mountains and crowned them with glistening snow.                               
Yet You are mindful of us with our hopes, dreams                               
and discouragements. You have not forgotten our                                
names, and even number the hairs of our heads.                                 
Help us today in our deliberations and decisions to                            
not forget those without voice, those with weak                                
voice, those with no one to speak for them.                                    
Sensitize our souls to Your still small voice and                              
grant us courage to obey that in some way we                                   
might be Your channels to other Alaskans. In the                               
Name of Him, Who came, not to be served but to                                 
serve, Jesus the Christ.                        Amen.

	Sec. 47.30.910.  Liability for expense of placement in a                     
treatment facility. (a) A patient, or the patients legal representative       
acting in a representative capacity, or the patients spouse, or the            
patients parents if the patient is under 18 years of age, shall pay or         
contribute to the payment of the charges for the care, transportation,         
and treatment of the patient when hospitalized under AS47.30.660 -             
47.30.915.  Charges assessed after an order for commitment for                 
treatment is issued and charges assessed when a patient is                     
hospitalized at a facility operated by the department, or under a              
contract for services with the department, may not exceed the actual           
cost of the care and treatment.  The department may order payment              
by the patient or by the person responsible for payment for the                
patients care and treatment under this subsection according to ability         
to provide for payment.  The department may make necessary                     
investigations to determine the ability to pay and may require sworn           
statements of income by the patient, the patients legal representative         
acting in a representative capacity, or the patients spouse or parent.         
In the exercise of the commissioners discretion, the commissioner              
may impose full liability for the patients actual cost of care and             
treatment on the patient, the patients legal representative, the               
patients spouse, or parent for refusal to supply a sworn statement of          
income.  An order for payment must be issued by the department                 
within six months after the date on which the charge was incurred.             
The order must remain in full force and effect unless modified by              
subsequent court or department order.  Liability under this subsection         
shall be determined as follows: a patient hospitalized under                   
AS47.30.660 - 47.30.915, or the person responsible for payment of              
charges for the patient, may be required to pay according to ability           
to provide for payment, and in the manner and proportion that the              
department finds is not detrimental to the patients rehabilitation.            
The department shall, at any time that it determines the action will
