§ 7130.702. Authority of the commission
(a) General rule.--The commission is authorized:
(1) To enter into reciprocal contingency agreements with noncompact states or other regional boards for the emergency disposal of low-level waste generated outside the compact region. Any such agreement shall include a provision that the quantity of waste for which the parties are responsible under the agreement shall be equal based on the volume of waste and/or total curie count.
(2) To establish regulations to specifically govern and define exactly what would constitute an emergency which requires the disposal of out-of-compact low-level waste at the regional facility.
(3) To determine whether an emergency exists outside the compact region and that a contingency agreement should be implemented.
(4) To request the General Assembly and the Governor to approve an extension of a reciprocal-contingency agreement, and to provide the date when out-of-compact waste disposal will cease under the agreement.
(b) Out-of-compact waste.--No agreement shall permit the disposal of out-of-compact low-level waste for a period exceeding four months, unless an extension is granted by the General Assembly or the Governor.
