LOW-LEVEL RADIOACTIVE WASTE AUTHORITY ACT (EXCERPT)
Act 204 of 1987


333.26215 Preliminary designation of host site; transmittal and availability of information; rejection of site; terms of agreement; design and construction of disposal site; “legislative working day” defined.

Sec. 15.

(1) The commissioner shall make a preliminary designation of the host site. Immediately following the preliminary designation of the host site, the authority shall transmit to the secretary of the senate and the clerk of the house of representatives the name and location of that site and any other information that the authority has regarding that site and the 2 remaining candidate sites. Upon request, the authority shall also make any information that the authority has regarding the preliminarily designated host site and the 2 remaining candidate sites available to members of the legislature. Upon the expiration of 30 days after transmittal, that 30 days to commence on the first legislative working day after the designation is transmitted, the preliminary host site designated by the commissioner shall be the host site unless within that time period the legislature either rejects the designated host site, or rejects the designated host site and designates 1 of the 2 remaining candidate sites. If the legislature rejects the preliminarily designated host site but does not designate 1 of the 2 remaining candidate sites as the host site, the commissioner shall designate 1 of the 2 remaining candidate sites as the host site. Once the host site is designated by the commissioner, the terms of the final complete agreement reached with the authority pursuant to section 16 for the host site community shall commence.

(2) The authority shall assure that the design and construction of the disposal site is completed in accord with the minimum criteria established by the department in part 137.

(3) As used in this section, “legislative working day” means a day on which both the senate and the house of representatives are called to order and a quorum of both the senate and the house of representatives is present.
