The California Commission on Uniform State Laws was created in 1897 to represent California on the national Uniform Law Commission (ULC)  www.Uniformlaws.org. The California Commissioners ensure that the unique problems facing California are addressed and that the perspective of the state is heard on the issues considered by the ULC.
Section 10281 of the California Government Code states, "The Commission shall bring about, as far as practicable, the passage of the various uniform acts recommended by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, and shall devise and recommend additional legislation or other course of action as is deemed necessary to accomplish the purposes of this article."
California has enacted many uniform acts developed by the ULC, including the Uniform Commercial Code, the Uniform Partnership Act, the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act, the Uniform Act on Child Custody Enforcement and Jurisdiction, the Uniform Durable Power of Attorney Act, and the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act..
