It has been found and declared in the “Housing Authorities Law” (chapter ninety-three,
acts of the legislature, second extraordinary session, one thousand nine hundred thirty-three)
that there exist in the State unsafe and unsanitary housing conditions and a shortage
of safe and sanitary dwelling accommodations for persons of low income; that these
conditions necessitate excessive and disproportionate expenditures of public funds
for crime prevention and punishment, public health and safety, fire and accident protection,
and other public services and facilities; and that the public interest requires the
remedying of these conditions. It is hereby found and declared that the assistance herein provided for the remedying
of the conditions set forth in the “Housing Authorities Law” constitutes a public
use and purpose and an essential governmental function for which public moneys may
be spent, and other aid given; that it is a proper public purpose for any state public
body to aid any housing authority operating within its boundaries or jurisdiction
or any housing project located therein, as the state public body derives immediate
benefits and advantages from such an authority or project; and that the provisions
hereinafter enacted are necessary in the public interest.
