27:5H-1. Findings, declarations
The Legislature finds and declares that the State of New Jersey, by virtue of its location, is one of the corridor states on the eastern seaboard through which certain nuclear waste may well be transported from its point of generation to its ultimate disposal facility; that the citizens of the State are entitled to the maximum protection possible from all threats to their health and welfare which may result from the transport of these dangerous materials through the State; that it is in the public interest for New Jersey to actively participate in the process of designating routes for the transport of certain nuclear waste through the State and develop contingency plans at all levels of government in order to ensure a swift and effective response in the event of a transport accident; and that these objectives can most efficiently and effectively be accomplished by delegating the responsibilities to a commission representing the broad range of interests and expertise appropriate to the tasks.
