UPDATE: HB43 is now sitting in the House Ways and Means Committee.
UELMA Subcommittee of the LLNE Government Relations Committee: Barbara Morgan, Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org); Marnie Warner, Barbara Schneider, Michelle Pearse, Joan Shear and Sue Zago
Reporting Massachusetts Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act HB 38 (UELMA) out of committee
A hearing for (HB 38) before the Joint Committee on the Judiciary was held on 4/24/2014. Marnie Warner testified for LLNE. We are waiting for it to be reported out of committee and are hoping that LLNE members who live in Massachusetts and have state Representatives and Senators ON THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE will be contacting them to express their support for the bill. Time is of the essence (within the next week)!
3. If one of your delegates is a member of the Judiciary Committee and you support HB 38 (UELMA), please e-mail a letter to them supporting its passage. A sample letter appears on the LLNE website.
Thank you! This legislation is at the heart of what we do as Law Librarians, giving people access to their law.
