    ‘(B) The amount referred to in subparagraph (A) is that share of the amount the State in which the facility is located will pay or assure payment of under clause (i) of paragraph (3)(C) that is attributable to the remedial action costs associated with the hazardous waste disposed of at the facility but generated in the other State.’.
