[Excerpt] Since 1987 the New Jersey Right-to-Know-and-Act Coalition has been working to extend the rights of citizens and workers to take an active part in decisions vital to their health and safety. The Coalition initiated activity that has resulted in a bill now before the New Jersey Legislature. The bill is called Hazard Elimination through Local Participation — or HELP. If passed, HELP could become a model for other states, and a giant step toward worker and citizen empowerment for health and safety.
