Art. 6243-2. PURPOSE. It is hereby declared to be the intention and purpose of the Legislature by and through the enactment of this Act to provide, in part, for the payment of old age assistance benefits, by raising revenues for such purpose and by delimiting the class of persons who shall be eligible for old age assistance benefits. It is recognized by the Legislature that it is impracticable to pay benefits to persons over sixty-five (65) years of age, except those who are in necessitous circumstances; in order that the needy aged may be cared for, it is necessary that the State have funds on hand to meet the accruing obligations therefor. In order to accomplish this purpose, the Legislature declares that it is necessary to accomplish two incidental objectives, namely: (1) the number of persons receiving old age assistance benefits must be decreased, and (2) in addition, more revenues must be provided for the purposes of paying such benefits. The accomplishment of this object is the purpose of this Act.
