||Regulation of hazardous waste transportation: Federal, State, Local, or all of the above
||May 1987, Vol.15, No.1-2, p.7-56.
||Administrative rulings (inconsistency rulings) and judicial determinations of preemption of state and local government regulations concerning the transportation of hazardous materials by US federal regulations were analysed. Transportation of both radioactive substances and other hazardous materials are considered. The methodology utilised was analysis on an issue-by-issue basis. Background on federal regulations and the criteria used for preemption decisions are presented. Considerations relevant to federal entities, including the DoE, DoD, state and local governmental entities, and transporters of hazardous materials are discussed. It is concluded that the Congress has failed to make a sufficient effort to resolve interjurisdictional differences.
