Uniform Legal Material Act Introduced in Three States

This post from the Gov Docs Guy summarizes the “first steps toward more trustworthy online state legal materials.”

“The years-long effort to address the reliability of online primary legal materials at the state level finally reached the floors of statehouses across the country when bills to enact the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act (UELMA) were introduced in Tennessee, Colorado, and California over a three week period from late January to mid-February. “
