      Section: App.A:9-72: Duties of planning group.

9. a. It shall be the duty of the planning group to identify needs and resources; to explore and determine the availability of the resources available to meet those needs; to develop, coordinate and integrate proposals to afford guidance to the task force in carrying out its duties; to formulate recommendations for the development of necessary training programs; and to provide such technical assistance as may be appropriate and necessary for the task force to fulfill its duties under this act. To the extent that the planning group obtains critical or sensitive intelligence information, such information shall be confidential. The planning group, in consultation with the task force, shall obtain and maintain data on the security needs of State and local governments and shall serve as the central agency for submitting applications to the federal government for terrorism planning and equipment grants.

b. There shall be established within the planning group a Weapons of Mass Destruction Advisory Committee. For the purposes of this subsection, weapons of mass destruction shall include, but not be limited to, nuclear weapons and biological or chemical agents. The Adjutant General of Military and Veterans' Affairs, or his designee, shall chair the advisory committee. The committee shall investigate and assess the nature and extent of the risk associated with terroristic attack or sabotage involving such weapons and shall assist the planning group and task force in developing appropriate preparedness plans. In performing its duties, the advisory committee may call upon the expertise, special training, and technological skill and capability of the New Jersey National Guard in the development, preparation, coordination and integration of the plans.
