State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) will be working with legal experts from across the country to help develop and promote uniform state laws.
Senate Minority Leader Dan McConchie (R-Hawthorn Woods) recently appointed Barickman to the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, also known as the Uniform Law Commission (ULC).
“I look forward to working with the ULC to help advance laws which are consistent from state to state,” said Barickman. “The organization’s efforts will reduce some of the conflicts and confusion faced by people who move from one state to another, or attempt to open a business in a new state. I believe that uniform regulations can help foster interstate commerce and growth.”
The ULC was established in 1892 to help provide states with non-partisan, well-conceived and well-drafted legislation that brings clarity and stability to critical areas of state statutory law.
All members of the ULC are required to be lawyers who are currently qualified to practice law, and receive no compensation for their work with the organization.
