SEC. 69-2-3. Legislative intent.
The Legislature hereby finds and declares that there exists within the state a serious emergency as a result of the nation's agricultural crisis and that there is a need to ensure that services are available for farmers, farm laborers, farm families and small businesses who have been adversely affected by the declining agricultural economy. Existing state programs need to be dedicated to meet these needs to the extent possible without creating additional administration. It is important that existing programs and services be coordinated into a network so that those in the agricultural and small business community can learn of these programs and services and obtain their benefits as expeditiously as possible.
