12A:12-22. Findings, declaration concerning "federal E-sign"
22. The Legislature finds and declares:
That the adoption of the "Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act," Pub.L. 106-229, 114 Stat. 464 (2000), popularly known as "federal E-Sign," encourages states to enact the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act proposed for adoption by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws; and
That the adoption of the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act will invoke the provisions of Section 102 of Pub. L. 106-229 which state that federal law will no longer preempt the laws of an enacting state; and
That Section 102 of Pub. L. 106-229 provides that a state, in enacting the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, may "modify, limit or supersede" the provisions of the federal law; and
That it is desirable for this State to take the fullest possible advantage of the ability to "modify, limit or supersede" Pub. L. 106-229; and
That it is the intention of the Legislature that the adoption of the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act in this State modify, limit and supersede the provisions of Pub. L. 106-229 to the fullest possible extent permitted under the federal law.
