OFFICE OF STATE PROGRAMS
U. S. NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

Vol. 9, No. 7 August, 1983

D' Many State legislatures are either out of session or have had short special
sessions during the summer months and as a result, this issue is brief.
On August 3, 1983, the National Governors' Association passed a
Tc resolution (D-15) on emergency preparedness at their meeting in
EC19 1984 Portland, Maine. The resolution adopted by the Governors says that
". in the absence of a plan meeting minimum Federal standards, the
States should take responsibility for preparing a plan. The Federal
government should be empowered to develop a plan as a last resort in the
-5/ event that all other entities fail to develop an acceptable plan." The
resolution also says that "the failure of a local government to prepare
plans and/or to conduct emergency response exercises" should not be the
basis for revoking a license or rejecting an application for one.
The National Conference of State Legislatures met in San Antonio, Texas,
August 8-12, 1983. Resolutions on low-level and high-level waste were
Debated and passed.
Senate Judiciary Hearings on the Southeast Low-Level Radioactive Waste
Compact, the latest compact to be submitted to Congress, will be held in
South Carolina on September 6, 1983. Included in this issue is the
latest status chart on legislation introduced and enacted in each of the
compact groups.
The Office of State Programs will host its National State Liaison
Officer's (SLO) meeting December 6-7, 1983 in the Commissioner's
Conference Room in Washington, DC. Among guest speakers included are:
Chairman Palladino; William Dircks, the Executive Director for
Operations; Victor Stello, the Deputy Executive Director for Regional
Operations and Generic Requirements; Herzel Plaine, the General Counsel;
and several Office Directors. Topics of discussion will include a
review of regulatory requirements, waste management, emergency
preparedness and recent court decisions.
