Uniform Acts

Uniform Acts

Laws that are designed to be adopted generally by all the states so that the law in one jurisdiction is the same as in another jurisdiction.

Uniform acts or laws are prepared and sponsored by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, whose members are experienced lawyers, judges, and professors of law generally appointed to the commission by state governors. Uniform acts or laws are adopted, in whole or substantially, by individual states at their option. Uniform laws are intended to promote fairness through the equal operation of standards upon the citizens of all states without distinction or discrimination. One uniform law, the Uniform Controlled Substances Act, is a comprehensive law that governs the use, sale, and distribution of Drugs and Narcotics in most states.
