§

7066. Requirements regarding radioactive waste disposal

(a) Every

generator of low-level radioactive waste in this state shall comply with the

reporting requirements of this chapter.

(b) A generator

of low-level radioactive waste in this state that existed, as a generator, on

the effective date of the compact, including any nuclear plant, may not be

discriminated against with respect to access to disposal capacity at the

compact facility.

(c) No generator

of low-level radioactive waste in the state existing on the date of enactment

of this section may increase its generation of waste in a year by more than 20

percent of the total annual volume of waste from all generators estimated for

disposal by the secretary of natural resources, under subdivision 7065(a)(3) of

this title, unless that generator receives a favorable determination from the

secretary of natural resources that disposal capacity will be available as

provided by section 3.04(11) of the compact agreement.

(d) Any person

other than those generators identified in subsection (c) of this section who

wishes to undertake an activity that will generate low-level radioactive waste

in the state must first receive a favorable determination from the secretary of

natural resources that disposal capacity will be available as provided by

section 3.04(11) of the compact agreement.

(e) No generator

of low-level radioactive waste may dispose of its low-level radioactive waste

at the compact facility unless that generator has a current indemnification

agreement with the state of Vermont. Federal generators of low-level

radioactive waste shall be required to indemnify the state only to the extent

permitted by federal law. Any indemnification agreement shall be reviewed by

the attorney general before the state agrees to it. (Added 1993, No. 137 (Adj.

Sess.), § 2.)
