Go Colorado!!!

On April 26, 2012, Colorado became the first state in the nation to enact the Uniform Electronic Legal Material Act (ULEMA).  The legislation includes provisions for permanent public access to official, authentic online legal materials.  The bill (HB1209), which enjoyed broad support,  covers the Constitution, Session Laws, Revised Statutes and Agency Regulations.  The regulations will be the first release under the new law. 

The American Association of Law Libraries was quick to celebrate, offering "Kudos to incoming AALL Government Relations Committee vice chair Susan Nevelow Mart, who worked closely with Senator Morgan Carroll, the majority caucus chair of the Senate and chair of the Judiciary Committee, to ensure passage."  Susan is the director of the Wise Law Library in the School of Law at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
