The revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts (RULONA) passed a final vote by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL), sending the proposed revision to the American Bar Association for its approval.
RULONA is a comprehensive revision of the Uniform Law on Notarial Acts approved in 1982. This version adapts the prior law to accommodate the societal and technological changes that have occurred in the past 30 years and is designed to make the Act more responsive to current transactions and continuing technological change.
Law commissioners appointed by each state serve without payment and are required to attend the annual meetings to discuss and vote on model and uniform acts.
Voting took place at the NCCUSL annual meeting July 9-16 in Chicago. Texas cast the lone “no” vote. Vermont abstained from the vote.
