The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL)

NCCUSL is a national, not-for-profit, nonpartisan organization composed of approximately 300 commissioners. Commissioners are appointed by the governor of each state, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. Commissioners are judges, law professors, legislators and lawyers who serve as volunteers. They receive no salary or other compensation. NCCUSL benefits from the experience of many commissioners who have served 30 or more years. NCCUSL is supported by state appropriations.

NCCUSL's mission is to promote uniformity in state laws on all subjects where uniformity is deemed appropriate. NCCUSL's uniform acts are draft bills, which are designed to be voluntarily enacted, essentially intact, by all states. In those instances where NCCUSL embarks upon a drafting process but the commissioners do not agree to promulgate the legislation, the draft is issued as a "model act," which states may adopt in whole or in part. NCCUSL has no power to impose its uniform acts on any jurisdiction. The most notable example of NCCUSL's success is the Uniform Commercial Code, a business code. NCCUSL has also worked on a uniform adoption act.
