Illinois has passed Senate Bill 2176 which is effective as of June 25,2021, repeals the state’s former non-UETA “Electronic Commerce Security Act”, and includes the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA), making Illinois the 49th state to have adopted UETA and leaving New York as the only non-UETA state. Illinois’ new UETA eliminates the federal ESIGN Act’s preemption of Illinois’ former non-UETA electronic signature and records law.  UETA provides the foundation for the use and acceptance of electronic signatures and delivery of electronic documents for the insurance industry.
