      Section: App.A:9-69: Adoption of standards, guidelines, protocols.

6. a. The task force shall adopt domestic security and preparedness standards, guidelines and protocols, subject to applicable constitutional and statutory limitations, to preserve, protect and sustain the critical assets of the State's infrastructure, which may be applicable to both public and private entities and facilities, as may be appropriate and critical to the public interest and well-being. In adopting such standards, guidelines and protocols, the task force shall not be bound by the requirements of the "Administrative Procedure Act," P.L.1968, c.410 (C.52:14B-1 et seq.); however, no adoption shall take place without review by the Infrastructure Advisory Committee established pursuant to section 7 of this act and approval by the Governor.

b. The task force may draw on the assistance of any State, county, or municipal government, independent authority or other agency or instrumentality of the State for the purposes of carrying out its duties under this act.

c. Subject to applicable constitutional and statutory limitations, the task force may seek or request and, if necessary, compel the production of such information as it deems necessary to perform its duties under this act; provided, however, that any such information that is confidential in nature, including proprietary information, shall be deemed privileged and shall not be publicly disclosed by the task force unless directly relating to the security, public safety or well- being of the citizens of this State.
