This bulletin is one of a series intended to present in
CC abstract form the public welfare provisions of the laws of eacr of
_2‘ the States.
‘ (a The purpose of these bulletins is to give a brief review

-3 jurisdictions, and of the administrative agencies set up by law with
11 reference thereto. A chart show1ng the organizational relationships
. if of the administrative agencies is included.
3~ The possibility of error in attempting with a limited staff
(a and in a limited time to assemble and digest the formidable mass of
5v material incident to such a study is frankly recognized. The cooperaw
0 tion of those who have occasion to use these digests in reporting any
}§ errors of omission or commission noted, or in suggesting improvement
g: in form or content, is invited and will be greatly appreciated.
fl Meanwhile it is hoped that those interested in considering
