The National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws was created by interstate compact in 1892. The Conference promotes uniform legislation designed to solve problems common to all states. Commissioners representing state government and the legal profession draft proposals, then work for their adoption by the states. When uniformity is neither practical nor necessary, the Conference also designs model acts to provide states with a concisely structured legislative framework adaptable to particular needs and problems.

The General Assembly, in 1896, established the Commissioners for the Promotion of Uniformity of Legislation in the United States (Chapter 264, Acts of 1896). In 1984, the Commissioners were renamed the State Commission on Uniform State Laws (Code State Government Article, secs. 9-201 through 9-206).

Every four years, the Governor appoints three Commissioners who represent Maryland in the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws. The Commissioners serve on committees that draft laws for submission to state legislatures and recommend measures to promote uniform laws.
