Uniform Statute and Rule Construction Act Law and Legal Definition

The Uniform Statute and Rule Construction Act was promulgated by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Law (NCCUSL) in 1993. It was later revised in 1995. This act provides guidelines for drafting and interpreting a state's statutes and administrative rules. This act superseded the Model Statutory Construction Act. New Mexico is the only state that has adopted this act.
