44:14-2. Legislative findings and declarations
The Legislature finds and declares: that there is a wide disparity in the cost of welfare between counties despite the assumption of the major portion of such costs by the Federal and State Governments; that the county costs are reflected in the real property taxes paid by the county residents; that the tax reform program enacted in 1976 is designed to relieve property tax burdens; that, consistent with the objectives of that tax reform program, it is altogether fitting and proper to establish a program to provide relief for local taxpayers by placing certain limitations on the per capita costs of county welfare.
L.1981, C. 60, S.2, eff. March 3, 1981.
