TheSouthwestern Low-Level Radioactive Waste Commission, established under Public Law 100-712, is the governing body for the Southwestern Low-Level Radioactive Waste Disposal Compact among Arizona, California, North Dakota, and South Dakota. California, as host state, is required to develop a regional disposal facility. A regional disposal facility has not yet been developed, so the Commission's key duties include controlling theexportation of low-level waste out of the region. As a separate legal entity. it can make recommendations and comments appropriate to its charge under law to do whatever is reasonably necessary to ensure that low-level waste is safely disposed of and managed within the region.
