Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 254 -- Uniform Electronic Transactions Act

Sponsor:  Byrd

This bill repeals the current Missouri Digital Signatures Act
(Sections 28.600 through 28.678, RSMo) and enacts the provisions
of the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, making electronic
transactions as enforceable as traditional paper transactions if
the parties agree to transact electronically.  There are some
exceptions for documents which must still be executed manually,
including laws governing the creation and execution of wills,
codicils or testamentary trusts, and other provisions of the
Uniform Commercial Code.
