(123rd General Assembly)
(Substitute Senate Bill Number 346)

To amend section 1306.02 of the Revised Code and to amend Section 58 of Am. Sub. H.B. 283 of the 123rd General Assembly, and to amend Sections 6.01, 18, and 22.16 of Am. Sub. H.B. 640 of the 123rd General Assembly, to amend Section 18 of Am. Sub. S.B. 192 of the 123rd General Assembly, and to amend Section 22.01 of Sub. S.B. 245 of the 123rd General Assembly to make certain changes in existing appropriations for fiscal year 2001, to change the reporting date of the Tobacco Oversight Accountability Panel, to remove a cross-reference to a repealed law in the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, and to create the Ticket To Work Program Evaluation Committee.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio:

SECTION 1 .  That section 1306.02 of the Revised Code be amended to read as follows:

Sec. 1306.02.  (A) Except as provided in division (B) of this section, sections 1306.01 to 1306.23 of the Revised Code apply to electronic records and electronic signatures relating to a transaction.

(B) Sections 1306.01 to 1306.23 of the Revised Code do not apply to a transaction to the extent it is governed by any of the following:

(1) A law governing the creation and execution of wills, codicils, or testamentary trusts;

(2) Chapter 1301., except sections 1301.07 and 1301.12, and Chapters 1303., 1304., 1305., 1306., 1307., 1308., and 1309. of the Revised Code.

SECTION 2 .  That existing section 1306.02 of the Revised Code is hereby repealed.

SECTION 3 .  Section 1306.02 of the Revised Code, as enacted by the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, Sub. H.B. 488 of the 123rd General Assembly, is amended by this act to remove an inadvertent cross-reference to the Bulk Transfer Act. In 1996, Am. S.B. 155 of the 121st General Assembly, 146 Ohio Laws 9046, 9060, repealed the Bulk Transfer Act, then codified as Chapter 1306. of the Revised Code. Therefore, inclusion of a reference to the Bulk Transfer Act in division (B)(2) of section 1306.02 of the Revised Code was inadvertent.

SECTION 4 .  That Section 58 of Am. Sub. H.B. 283 of the 123rd General Assembly be amended to read as follows:
