Governor M. Jodi Rell signed Connecticut HB 6985 into law on June 7. Like the versions of Revised Article 1 previously enacted in Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and Virginia, HB 6985 rejects uniform R1-301 in favor of language similar to pre-revised 1-105. Like the versions previously enacted in Arkansas, Delaware, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas, HB 6985 adopts the uniform good faith definition in R1-201(b)(20). By its terms, HB 6985 will take effect on October 1, 2005.
