Town Hall Meeting with Congressman Frank Wolf and Congressman Tom Osborne

March 5, 2006

Dear Lt. Swain:

I am writing to invite you and the members of the Police Officers' Association of Nebraska to attend a town hall meeting that I am hosting on the Doane College campus in Crete , NE , on Friday, March 17, 2006. The purpose of the town hall meeting is to discuss federal funding and a coordinated effort to combat methamphetamine in Nebraska .

Congressman Frank Wolf of Virginia will be joining me at this event. Congressman Wolf is the Chairman of the Science, the Departments of State, Justice, and Commerce (SSJC) Appropriations Subcommittee. The SSJC appropriations bill provides federal funding for a number of critical programs in the fight against meth including the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program, the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) Program, and the Drug Court Program.

As you may know, the President's Fiscal Year 2007 Budget recommends the elimination of the Byrne Program. This funding is critical to the multi-jurisdictional drug task forces in Nebraska and additional reductions to this program would severely limit the ability of these task forces to address drug-related crime in Nebraska . This town hall meeting will be an opportunity for law enforcement officials to discuss the importance of Byrne funding to Nebraska and the impact this program has on our communities. Additionally, law enforcement officials will hear from Congressman Wolf about future funding for state and local law enforcement activities vital to our area.

Please join us on Friday, March 17 th from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. for this important event. The meeting will be held in the Witcomb Lee Conservatory on the Doane College campus. I have enclosed for your review driving directions to the campus and a campus map of Doane College . Pre-registration is suggested, but not required. To pre-register or obtain additional information about this forum, please contact Jeremiah Blake of my staff. Mr. Blake can be reached at jeremiah.blake @mail.house.gov or by telephone at (202) 225-6435.

I sincerely hope that you will consider attending this town hall meeting or sending an appropriate member of your department. Please share the details of this event with other parties who may be interested in attending. I look forward to seeing you on March 17 th for this important forum.

Best Wishes,

TOM OSBORNE

Member of Congress
