Chapter 589

< > Effective - 28 Aug 2000 bottom

  589.554.  Default. — 1.  If the Interstate Commission determines that any time defaulted ("defaulting state" ) in the performance of any of its obligations or responsibilities under this Compact, the By-laws or any duly promulgated Rules, the Interstate Commission may impose any or all of the following penalties:

  (1)  Fines, fees and costs in such amounts as are deemed to be responsible as fixed by the Interstate Commission;

  (2)  Remedial training and technical assistance as directed by the Interstate Commission;

  (3)  Suspension and termination of membership in the compact.  Suspension shall be imposed only after all other reasonable means of securing compliance under the By-laws and Rules have been exhausted.  Immediate notice of suspension shall be given by the Interstate Commission to the Governor, the Chief Justice or Chief Judicial Officer of the state; the majority and minority leaders of the defaulting state's legislature, and the State Council.

  2.  The grounds for default include, but are not limited to, failure of a compacting state to perform such obligations or responsibilities imposed upon it by this compact, Interstate Commission By-laws, or duly promulgated Rules.  The Interstate Commission shall immediately notify the defaulting state in writing of the penalty imposed by the Interstate Commission on the defaulting state pending a cure of the default.  The Interstate Commission shall stipulate the conditions and the time period within which the defaulting state must cure its default.  If the defaulting state fails to cure the default within the time period specified by the Interstate Commission, in addition to any other penalties imposed therein, the defaulting state may be terminated from the Compact upon an affirmative vote of a majority of the compacting states and all rights, privileges and benefits conferred by the Compact shall be terminated from the effective date of suspension.  Within sixty days of the effective date of termination of a defaulting state, the Interstate Commission shall notify the Governor, the Chief Justice or Chief Judicial Officer and the Majority and Minority Leaders of the defaulting state's legislature and the state council of such termination.

  3.  The defaulting state is responsible for all assessments, obligations and liabilities incurred through the effective date of termination including any obligations, the performance of which extends beyond the effective date of termination.

  4.  The Interstate Commission shall not bear any costs relating to the defaulting state unless otherwise mutually agreed upon between the Interstate Commission and the defaulting state.  Reinstatement following termination of any compacting state requires both a reenactment of the Compact by the defaulting state and the approval of the Interstate Commission pursuant to the Rules.
