sudo and PATH?

hi,

I have a bunch of scripts in /usr/local/scripts/ , some of which need
sudo access.  It's frustrating to always have to type out the whole file
path:

sudo /usr/local/scripts/worknetworksetup.sh
instead of
sudo worknetworksetup.sh

I have my regular user's path set to:
$PATH:/usr/local/scripts/

but this of course doesn't extend over to sudo  Is there a way to change
sudo's path, preferably permanently and for every user?

Thanks,

Matt
