§11-13I-1. Legislative purpose.
The Legislature finds and declares that the Colin Anderson Center employees were good employees and performed a valuable service for the residents of the center, and the public comments regarding the closure of Colin Anderson indicated that the main objection to the closure was the care which the residents of Colin Anderson would receive elsewhere. In recognition of the expertise of these employees and their dedication to their duties and the people whom they cared for, the Legislature finds that it is in the best interests of the state to encourage the employment of those persons who are unemployed as a result of the closing of the Colin Anderson Center.
