(b) To every extent possible, it shall be the policy of states
party to this compact that no patient shall be placed or detained in
any prison, jail or lockup, but such patient shall, with all expedition,
be taken to a suitable institutional facility for mental illness or mental

Article X

"(a) Each party state shall appoint a 'compact administrator'
who, on behalf of his state, shall act as general coordinator of ac-
tivities under the compact in his state and who shall receive copies
of all reports, correspondence, and other documents relating to any
patient processed under the compact by his state either in the ca-
pacity of sending or receiving state. The compact administrator or
his duly designated representative shall be official with whom other
party states shall deal in any matter relating to the compact or any
patient processed thereunder.

(b) The compact administrators of the respective party states
shall have power to promulgate reasonable rules and regulations to
carry out more effectively the terms and provisions of this compact.

Article XI

"The duly constituted administrative authorities of any two
or more party states may enter into supplementary agreements for
the provision of any service or facility or for the maintenance of
any institution on a joint or cooperative basis whenever the states
concerned shall find that such agreements will improve services,
facilities, or institutional care and treatment in the fields of mental
illness or mental deficiency. No such supplementary agreement
shall be construed so as to relieve any party state of any obligation
which it otherwise would have under other provisions of this compact.

Article XII

"This compact shall enter into full force and effect as to any
state when enacted by it into law and such state shall thereafter be a
party thereto with any and all states legally joining therein.

Article XIII


"(a) A state party to this compact may withdraw therefrom
by enacting a statute repealing the same. Such withdrawal shall take
effect one year after notice thereof has been communicated officially
and in writing to the governors and compact administrators of all
other party states. However, the withdrawal of any state shall not
change the status of any patient who has been sent to said state or
sent out of said state pursuant to the provisions of the compact.

(b) Withdrawal from any agreement permitted by Article VII(b)
as to costs or from any supplementary agreement made pursuant to
Article XI shall be in accordance with the terms of such agreement.
