Please join Assemblymember Jim Beall Jr. and members of the California Assembly’s Alcohol and Drug Abuse Select Committee at a special hearing and rally hosted by Assemblymember Kevin de Leon on June 19 at the Los Angeles County  USC Medical Center.

This hearing focuses on the cost of alcohol’s harm to California and potential cuts that would eliminate Proposition 36, the Offender Treatment Program, and affect local funding that combats addictions. Elimination of these programs will lead to the unnecessary destruction of people’s lives as well as their families’ while adding to Californias costs for healthcare, foster care and imprisonment.

Select Committee members will discuss alternatives to the Governor’s proposed cuts including the concept of raising levies on alcohol to help pay for alcohol-related accidents, emergency medical and trauma care, treatment programs, and law enforcement costs.

The Select Committee invites you to attend this crucial rally and hearing to provide your ideas and solutions to save these important treatment programs in the face of a devastating $24 billion state deficit Please contact interested groups or individuals about this special meeting.
