CONCURRENT RESOLUTION to support the designation of a National ESIGN Day:
Whereas the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (ESIGN) was enacted on June 30, 2000, to ensure that a signature, contract, or other record relating to a transaction may not be denied legal effect, validity, or enforceability solely because it is in electronic form;
Whereas June 30, 2010, marks the 10th anniversary of the enactment of ESIGN and would be an appropriate date to designate as 'National ESIGN Day':
Now, therefore, be it Resolved that Congress supports the designation of a 'National ESIGN Day';
recognizes the previous contribution made by Congress to the adoption of modern solutions that keep the United States on the leading technological edge; and
reaffirms its commitment to facilitating interstate and foreign commerce in an increasingly digital world.
