A.R.S. § 23-109 - Use Of Gifts And Grants By The Arizona Industrial Commission

Arizona Revised Statute Section 23-109 addresses the uses of gifts and grants by the Arizona Industrial Commission as follows:

The industrial commission may accept and expend public and private gifts and grants for the conduct of programs which are consistent with the overall purposes and objectives of the commission.

This Arizona statute pertains to the funding sources that the Industrial Commission is authorized to receive funds from, and the use of those funds. Based on the language of the statute, which does not appear to have been the subject of much litigation since it was enacted in 1974, there are few limitations on the sources of funding for the Industrial Commission. The Commission is only able to use those funds, however, in ways that are "consistent with the overall purposes and objectives of the commission."

Although the "purposes and objectives" of the Industrial Commission are not expressly defined in this section of the statutes, nor elsewhere as far as I can tell, they may be generally derived from the balance of the governing statutes as set forth in A.R.S. §§ 23-101 - 23-110, and in Title 20, Section 5, of the Arizona Administrative Code, which is the section of the official rules of the State of Arizona governing state agencies, boards, and commissions that apply to the Industrial Commission.
