In this article the author examines the special role of the states in the low-level radioactive waste disposal crisis presently plaguing the United States and the resulting potential for state liability under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA). In doing so, the author will suggest some possible ways by which states may limit their CERCLA liability while satisfying their waste disposal responsibilities to their citizens and the environment.
