|Affirmative Legislative Program
Each year, the ISBA’s affirmative legislative program includes proposals for enactment by Iowa’s Legislature for the benefit of Iowa’s citizens. For example, after extensive study, the Association has recommended adoption and/or amendment of the Probate Code, Trust Code, Commercial Code and Business Corporation Act. It has also been active in studies and recommendations concerning community-based corrections programs for drug-addicted, non-violent criminal offenders; for improvements in laws governing electronic commerce; and in proposed legislation for the modernization of real estate records.
