Four States Now Protect Against UCITA

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 1, 2003

According to ALAWON, the ALA Washington Office Electronic Newsline, on May 29 Vermont Governor Jim Douglas signed HB 148, the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA). “This bill included a UCITA (Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act) bomb-shelter provision in its Choice of Law Section. Such bomb-shelter laws have been enacted in four states: Iowa, West Virginia, North Carolina and now Vermont. The laws are called “bomb-shelters” because they protect the residents and businesses of the enacting state from the reaches of UCITA. For related information, see the ALA UCITA website.
