The Interstate Mining Compact Commission is a multi-state governmental agency / organization that represents the natural resource and related environmental protection interests of its member
states. First envisioned in 1964, the Commission came into existence in 1970 with the entry of its first four states. Since that time, 23 additional states have enacted legislation bringing them into the Compact, and 2 additional
states have become associate members as they pursue enactment of legislation which will make them full members. The Commission established its headquarters in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. in 1988. The states
are officially represented by their Governors who serve as Commissioners. The Commission operates through several committees composed of duly appointed representatives of the Governors from their respective Departments of Natural
Resources or Environmental Protection.
