    (2) 'Atlantic Compact' means the Northeast Interstate Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management Compact as defined in the 'Omnibus Low-Level Radioactive Waste Compact Consent Act of ', Public Law , Title II. Use of the term 'Atlantic Compact' does not change in any way the substance of and is to be considered identical to the Northeast. Once it withdrew from the Southeast Compact, South Carolina “waived its rights under the [Act] to exclude waste from outside the region,” Midwest Interstate Low-Level Radioactive Waste Comm'n v. O'Leary, , n. 2 (), thereby making the Barnwell disposal facility in that state available to the generators within. Since closure of the site, the Rocky Mountain Low Level Waste Compact has entered into an agreement with the Northwest Interstate Compact on Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management which allows low-level waste generators in Colorado, Nevada, and New Mexico to dispose of their waste at the Richland, Washington LLW facility. "The issue in this case is whether the Northwest Interstate Compact on Low-Level Radioactive Waste allows its member states to exclude low-level radioactive waste from disposal at a Utah site," according to the Nov. 9 ruling. The ruling proves that states do have that power through interstate compacts.
