"201-2 General objective, functions, and duties of department. (a) It shall be the objective of the department of business, economic development, and tourism to make broad policy determinations with respect to economic development in the State and to stimulate through research and demonstration projects those industrial and economic development efforts that offer the most immediate promise of expanding the economy of the State. The department shall endeavor to gain an understanding of those functions and activities of other governmental agencies and of private agencies that relate to the field of economic development. It shall, at all times, encourage initiative and creative thinking in harmony with the objectives of the department.

(c) The department of business, economic development, and tourism may acquire and hold title to or contract to acquire by grant or purchase real, personal, or mixed property or any interest therein; to clear, improve, and rehabilitate and to sell, assign, exchange, transfer, convey, lease, or otherwise dispose of or encumber the same; and acquire property by condemnation pursuant to chapter 101."
