1983 ANNUAL SUMMARY
AAR 29 1984
Th s sue of the Report summarizes all nuclear-related State legislation
a d into law in 1983. The next issue will cover legislation profiled
introduced into the 1984 legislative sessions.
On December 6 and 7, 1983, the Office of State Programs hosted a National
State Liaison Officer's (SLO) meeting at the Commissioners' Conference
Room, 1717 "H" Street, Washington, D.C. The SLO's are appointed by the
Governors of each of the fifty States and Puerto Rico to provide a
communications channel between the States and the NRC. Topics of
discussion included: reactor regulation, source term evaluation, recent
court decisions impacting nuclear regulation, waste management and
emergency preparedness. The meeting was open to the public for
attendance and observation.
Throughout the year, NRC has responded to low-level waste compact groups
with comments and reviews of their compact language when requested. NRC
also participated in a national symposium on low-level waste compacts and
provided Congressional testimony on the Northwest, Southeast, and Central
Compacts. Following Congressional consent to these compacts and the Rocky
Mountain Compact, which has also been submitted to Congress, two more
important areas must be successfully resolved in the next few years. The
first is the negotiation of interregional agreements between those regions
with sites and those without sites for the interim disposal of waste after
the cutoff date of January. 1986, which is allowed under the Low-Level
Radioactive Waste Policy Act. The second is the submission to Congress of
the Midwest and Northeast Compacts. The Central, the Southeast and the
Rocky Mountain Compacts were submitted in 1983. The Northwest was
originally submitted in 1982 but resubmitted to the 98th Congress in
1983.
State Programs has issued NUREG-1015, entitled "State Surveillance of
Radioactive Material Transportation, A Final Report," regarding a 1983
analysis conducted of the joint NRC/U.S. Department of Transportation
(DOT) program to monitor the transport of radioactive material through
and within the States during the period 1973-1982. The main objective of
the analysis is to suggest the most cost-effective inspection areas where
enforcement actions might be taken by the States during their








participation in the State Hazardous Materials Enforcement (SHMED)
Program of DOT. For information on obtaining a copy of the NUREG, please
contact this office.

In the high-level waste area, discussions are continuing among NRC and
the States concerning possible changes to Subpart C, Part 60 in light of
provisions in the 1982 Nuclear Waste Policy Act. We will continue to
report any significant progress.
