AS 26.23.050. Financing.

(a) It is the intent of the legislature, and declared to be the policy of the state, that funds to meet disaster emergencies will always be available.

(b) Whenever, and to the extent that, money is needed to cope with a disaster, the first recourse shall be to money regularly appropriated to state and local agencies. The second recourse shall be to money available in the disaster relief fund or, for oil or hazardous substances discharges, the oil and hazardous substance release prevention and response fund, as the governor determines appropriate. If money available from these sources is insufficient, and if the governor finds that other sources of money to cope with the disaster are not available or are insufficient, the governor may, notwithstanding the limitations imposed by AS 37.07.080 (e),

(1) transfer and spend money appropriated for other purposes; or

(2) borrow money for a term not to exceed two years.

(c) Nothing in this section limits the governor's authority to apply for, receive, administer, and spend grants, gifts, or payments from any source, to aid in disaster prevention, preparedness, response, or recovery.
