Tennessee’s Uniform Law Commissioners are asking the TBA to undertake, review and consider five new uniform laws for possible enactment during the 2018 legislative session. The five commissioners are appointed by the Governor to join with commissioners from other states recommending uniform laws for enactment. Commissioner Tim Amos has indicated that the Uniform Protected Series Act is of most importance. Also under consideration are the Uniform Commercial Real Estate Receivership Act, the Uniform Partition of Heirs Property Act, the Uniform Unsworn Domestic Declarations Act and the Uniform Directed Trusts Act. Members of several TBA sections will undertake formal reviews and possibly recommend them for consideration. TBA members who would like to comment can direct their comments to the relevant TBA sections.
