This bulletin is one of a series intended to present in abstract I
form the public welfare provisions of the laws of each of the States.

The purpose of these bulletins is to give a brief review of the
provisions for public assistance under the laws of the several juris-
dictions, and of the administrative agencies set up by law with reference

' thereto. A chart showing the organizatioml relationships of the admini-
strative agencies is included.
i; The possibility of error in attempting with a limited staff and
gran a limited time to assemble and digest the formidable mass of material
_ 1’25 incident to such a study is frankly recognized. The cooperation of those
. :0 who have occasion to use these digests in reporting any errors of omission
: or commission noted, or in suggesting improvement in form or content, is
invited and will be greatly appreciated.
Meanwhile it is hoped that those interested in considering the ‘
x; reorganization or strengthening of public welfare services in the several
3 States may find the digests of practical value.
