Pacific States Agreement on Radioactive Materials Transportation

Establishes the Pacific States Radioactive Materials Transportation Committee to develop model regulatory standards for party states relating to routing and inspecting shipments of radioactive material. Radioactive material is defined by the U.S. Dept. of Transportation, 40 C.F.R. ยง 173. It includes, but is not limited to high level and low level radioactive waste, spent nuclear fuel, as defined in Section 2 of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1983 (96 Stat. 2202, 42 U.S.C.A. Sec. 10101). Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming are eligible. The compact becomes effective when enacted into law by two states. A 1997 Oregon legislative staff summary indicates that this compact may have been superseded by the Western Interstate Energy Board, and is thus likely to be dormant or defunct.
