The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL), a government body I haven’t given much thought to, has a quick reference to states that have adopted various recommendations on changes to their laws to create uniformity across all states. This organization of lawyers and legislators “supports the federal system and facilitates the movement of individuals and the business of organizations with rules that are consistent from state to state. ”
Select legislation from the drop-down menu to find the states that have adopted it and the summary language with bill tracking. For example, UNIFORM CHILD WITNESS TESTIMONY BY ALTERNATIVE METHODS ACT (2002) has been adopted by Idaho, Nevada and Oklahoma.
There is no site search engine so you can either search for all legislation by state or by the particular name of the legislation.
