[Originating in the Committee on Government Organization;

Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance authorize a study of the feasibility of adopting a uniform lien filing system.

WHEREAS,
The West Virginia Code recognizes numerous types of liens with various requirements, and prescribes formats for liens that vary according to the type of the lien; and
WHEREAS, Clerks of the County Commissions must maintain liens in various indices according to statute; and
WHEREAS, Creating a uniform lien filing system would ease the burden on the Clerks and make record-keeping and searches more efficient and manageable; and
WHEREAS, Creating a single uniform lien filing form that requires certain information would provide for simpler lien filing, and eliminate hurdles that prevent citizens from filing and perfecting a lien; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to authorize a study of the feasibility of adopting a uniform lien filing system
; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the Regular Session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Legislative expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
