Interstate Compact: A set of laws created in the form of a suggested model state statue covering a specific area of law that is of general concern to all states, which is usually drafted by a committee with input from all or a large number of the states. This compact legislation is then voluntarily enacted into law in its model form, or in a slightly customized form, by the legislatures of those states that choose to become part of the Compact Group. The adoption of Interstate Compacts helps to standardize state laws across the country on covered topics.
