On Monday February 11th, CLEAA Executive Director Luis Ebratt attended Congressman David Schweikert’s (CD6) “morning Coffee” session at Paradise Valley Community College. The Congressman discussed many topics of importance to include: firearm reform and the financial condition of our country and state. Specifically the issue of “Sequestration “: the fiscal policy procedure adopted by congress with the Federal budget deficit. Simply put this “automatic” form of spending cutbacks could impact law enforcement in the State of Arizona by cutting back on funding at the state and local levels. The CLEAA board encourages all our officers to take an active role in contacting their congressional representatives and senators alike for resolution before potentially harmful spending cuts take effect March 1st.
