The Commission is authorized to call upon any department, office, division or agency of the state to supply such statistical data, program reports, or other information and assistance as it may find necessary in the discharge of its responsibilities under this Order.
This order shall expire on December 31, 1994, unless renewed by an Executive Order prior to that date.
