Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on states' efforts to implement the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of 1985, focusing on Connecticut's program for developing a disposal facility for commercial low-level radioactive waste. GAO noted that: (1) 13 states, including 8 states that are members of state compacts, plan to develop new disposal facilities; (2) only California, a member of a 4-state compact, may have a facility operational by the January 1, 1993 deadline, and the other planned facilities could be completed between 1993 and 1999; and (3) Connecticut's facility development schedule is unknown, since it suspended site-specific testing after determining that its site-screening contractor made some errors in its technical investigation of three candidate sites.
