MRMTC Planning Guide 2017

The Council of State Governments The Council of State Governments (CSG) is our nation’s only organization serving all three branches of state government. CSG is a region-based forum that fosters the exchange of insights and ideas to help state officials shape public policy. This offers unparalleled regional, national, and international opportunities to network, develop leaders, collaborate, and create problem- solving partnerships. Through its national office in Lexington, Kentucky, a state-federal office in Washington, D.C., and regional offices in New York, Atlanta, Chicago (Lombard), and Sacramento, CSG is dedicated to preserving the role of the states in America’s federal system. The role of CSG’s Midwestern Office (CSG Midwest) is to foster intergovernmental cooperation through the promotion of regional—as well as individual—state responses to common issues and challenges. This report was prepared with the support of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Cooperative Agreements DE-NE0008604, DE-EM0004869, and DE- EM00002327. Any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed herein, however, are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of DOE. The purpose of the agreement is to identify and analyze regional issues pertaining to the transportation of DOE’s radioactive waste and material. Through the agreement, CSG Midwest provides the Midwestern states with information on the technical, institutional, and regulatory issues related to radioactive material transportation. The agreement also provides the states with an opportunity to work with DOE to plan and prepare for the department’s shipments that affect the Midwest. Prepared by: Lisa R. Janairo, Program Director; Katelyn Tye-Skowronski, Policy Analyst; and the CSG Midwestern Radioactive Materials Transportation Committee Planning Guide for Shipments of Radioactive Material through the Midwestern States
