§16-29E-1. Findings and purpose.
The Legislature hereby finds and declares that:

(1) A crisis exists in the funding of health and social programs of this state;

(2) These programs exist to provide federal and state supported services to citizens in need;

(3) The health and well-being of these citizens is jeopardized when uncontrolled growth in various programs uses a disproportionate share of the available funding;

(4) State programs are often developed and implemented with limited private or federal grant moneys, which require future funding from the limited state resources; and

(5) The problem is exacerbated when various state agencies make competing or conflicting policy decisions.
