In the most general sense a state is a corporation. See;
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporation#History  Further, in most cases
the agencies of a state are not independent but sub-parts of the whole.
Therefore, moving resources between agencies should more properly be
considered a reorganization of a single entity, in most situations, and not
a transfer between separate entities.  Also, I'd expect ARIN would provide
some level of deference to sovereign government entities like states,
especially in an interagency type situation.

However, to protect itself, I would expect ARIN would want to ensure they
are dealing with someone with the proper authority to act on the state's
behalf.  So, I could imagine ARIN asking a state (or agency) to provide
evidence (such as a quote of applicable statute) of who has authority over
the agencies and/or resources in question.  I expect this would be
especially be true, if resources were being transferred out of a State's
