MEETING ON UNIFORM STATE LAWS
The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, repre-
senting the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, met in the
Chase-Park Plaza Hotel, St. Louis, Missouri, July 31 through August 5, 1961.
The Conference consists of Commissioners and Associate Members from every
state. Annual Conferences are held to deliberate on proposed uniform and model
statutes for submission to state legislatures.
The Kansas commissioners, as established by statute, are called an advisory
committee to the Kansas Commission on Interstate Cooperation and are appointed
by its Chairman with the advice of the President of the Bar Association of the
State of Kansas. The Associate Member from each state, as established by the
constitution of the National Conference, is the officer in charge of bill drafting
for the state legislature.
Kansas commissioners are Judge Spencer A.. Gard, Iola; Attorney Paul L.
Wilbert, Pittsburg; and Dean John E. Howe, Topeka.
The Kansas Associate Member is Revisor of Statutes, Franklin Corrick, Topeka.
Founded in 1892, the National Conference seeks to promote uniformity in
state laws on all subjects where uniformity is deemed desirable and practical.
Some of the outstanding examples of the National Conference's efforts are the
Negotiable Instruments Act, the Warehouse Receipts Act, the Stock Transfer
Act, the Narcotic Drug Act, Reciprocal Enforcement of Support Act, Criminal
Extradition Act and Gifts to Minors Act which are the law in practically every
state. Kansas has adopted all of these acts.
This year's Conference considered uniform act regarding nuclear facilities
liability, non-residents income taxes, death tax credits, a code of military justice,
and numerous other subjects.
This week-long National Conference preceded the opening of the American
Bar Association's annual meeting in St. Louis the week of August 7, 1961.
