CONSTITUTIONAL LAW - INTERSTATE COMPACTS - COLUMBIA RIVER BASIN - CONSENT BY CONGRESS NO LIMITATION ON FUTURE LEGISLATION
CONSTITUTIONAL LAW ‑- INTERSTATE COMPACTS ‑- COLUMBIA RIVER BASIN ‑- CONSENT BY CONGRESS NO LIMITATION ON FUTURE LEGISLATION Ratification by all states within the Columbia River Basin of an interstate compact, consented to by the Congress of the United States, will not restrict or impair the powers of Congress relating to the regulation and control of the use of waters of the Columbia River Basin.
AGO 1968 No. 22 >  June 3, 1968
CONSTITUTIONAL LAW - INTERSTATE COMPACTS - MULTISTATE TAX COMPACTS - TAXATION - CONSENT OF CONGRESS UNNECESSARY FOR FORMATION OF MULTISTATE TAX COMPACT
CONSTITUTIONAL LAW - INTERSTATE COMPACTS - MULTISTATE TAX COMPACTS - TAXATION - CONSENT OF CONGRESS UNNECESSARY FOR FORMATION OF MULTISTATE TAX COMPACT We believe that the provisions of chapter 125, Laws of 1967, under which the state of Washington became a party to the multistate tax compact, are effective as Washington law without any legal necessity for consent to formation of the compact to be granted by the United States Congress; however, the enactment of a consent bill by Congress would completely remove any conceivable doubt as to the validity of the compact.
