§9-1-1. Legislative purpose.
The Legislature in enacting this chapter intends to continue
on a reorganized basis welfare assistance programs heretofore
administered by the state department of welfare and county councils
to the end that residents of the state who are subject to the
recurring misfortunes of life may continue to have such aid and
encouragement as the county alone, the state alone or the state in
cooperation with the federal government may provide.
