§ 18-107. Filing of application for certificate; docketing; convening
of board. 1. Any person seeking to establish or operate a temporary
nuclear waste repository shall file an application for a certificate
with the commissioner. Copies of such application shall be served on
each municipality within which the facility is proposed to be situated
or operated, as well as with any other governmental agency specified in
subdivision two or three of section 18-103 of this article having
jurisdiction. Such application shall meet requirements of section 18-109
of this article. Such application shall be accompanied by a deposit of
three hundred thousand dollars, which shall be used by the board to
defray its expenses; provided, however, that upon the termination of a
proceeding under this article, any unexpended balance shall be returned
to the applicant.

2. Within sixty days after the receipt of an application filed
pursuant to this section, the commissioner shall determine whether the
application complies with section 18-109 of this article. If he finds
that the application does not so comply, he shall so inform the
applicant.

3. Notwithstanding paragraphs one or two of section 18-107, upon a
determination that an application is sufficiently complete for the board
to make a decision on the findings in section 18-111 the commissioner
shall transmit a copy of the application to the commissioner of health,
and shall transmit to the governor, the temporary president of the
senate and the speaker of the assembly, notification that the
application has been filed seeking a certificate pursuant to this
article, and that a board will be convened pursuant to the provisions of
this article.

4. The commissioner shall transmit to each of the municipalities,
agencies and persons required to receive a copy of the application
pursuant to section 18-103 of this article or subdivision three of this
section, a notice stating that the application has been docketed and
stating the time and place of the first meeting of the board, which
shall be not more than forty-five days after the date of such notice.

5. Upon receipt of notice from the commissioner convening a board, the
temporary president of the senate and the speaker of the assembly shall
each designate one person to be appointed by the governor to serve on
the board.
