§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.
