§571.  Finding and declaration of necessity

It has been found and declared in the Housing Authorities Law that there generally exist in urban and rural sections throughout the state, slum or blighted areas, unsafe or insanitary dwelling accommodations and a shortage of safe and sanitary dwelling accommodations for persons of low income; that these conditions constitute a menace to the health, safety, morals, and welfare of the residents of the state and impair economic values; 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 monies 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 development or redevelopment project located therein; as the state public body derives immediate benefits and advantages from such an authority development or project; and that the provisions hereinafter enacted are necessary and in the public interest.
