  •  A contract requires a consideration (0+ / 0-)
    In 1976, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland stated in Hellmuth and Associates v. Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority:

    “When enacted, a compact constitutes not only law, but a contract which may not be amended, modified, or otherwise altered without the consent of all parties.”

    A compact to join together to build a bridge is a contract.

    A compact to choose electors in a certain way is not - there is no consideration, and any consideration would be blatantly illegal.
