Abstract :

The US federal government allows state governments to form alliances among themselves to solve problems on a regional scale. Historically, interstate compacts have been formed to settle disputes concerning boundaries, water rights, transportation, trade and commerce and industrialization. However, since the 1970s these compacts have been used increasingly to settle environmental management issues.
