Summary

This legislation authorizes Maryland's entrance into the Appalachian States Low-Level Radioactive Waste Compact, which seeks to promote interstate cooperation for the proper management and disposal of low-level radioactive wastes. The Commission that administers the compact is also responsible for conducting research and recommending regulations pertaining to radioactive waste. The states of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia are party to this compact. The compact is designed so that each state in turn assumes the responsibility of the host state for the receipt and disposal of low-level radioactive waste. Pennsylvania is currently the host state.
