13.48(34) (34)Debt increase for the construction of a youth activities center by the Milwaukee Police Athletic League.
13.48(34)(a)(a) The legislature finds and determines that preventing youth from engaging in delinquent behavior, encouraging positive moral development in youth and providing youth with opportunities for positive interaction with the police are statewide responsibilities of statewide dimension. The legislature also finds and determines that the youth of the city of Milwaukee are disproportionately represented in the state's juvenile correctional system and that, because those youth are so disproportionately represented, the state has a specific concern in preventing those youth from engaging in delinquent behavior, encouraging positive moral development in those youth and providing those youth with opportunities for positive interaction with the police. In addition, the legislature finds and determines that the Milwaukee Police Athletic League prevents that delinquent behavior, encourages that positive moral development and provides those opportunities for positive interaction through the recreational, educational, social and cultural activities that it provides for the youth of the greater Milwaukee community. The legislature, therefore, finds and determines that assisting the Milwaukee Police Athletic League in the construction of a youth activities center at which the Milwaukee Police Athletic League will provide recreational, educational, social and cultural activities for the youth of the greater Milwaukee community under the supervision of volunteer police officers of the city of Milwaukee will have a direct and immediate effect on that specific statewide concern and on those state responsibilities of statewide dimension.

13.48(34)(c) (c) If the building commission authorizes a grant to the Milwaukee Police Athletic League under par. (b) and if, for any reason, the facility that is constructed with funds from the grant is not used as a youth activities center, the state shall retain an ownership interest in the facility equal to the amount of the state's grant.
