Justipedia explains Uniform Commercial Code (UCC)

The Universal Commercial Code covers issues such as breaches of contract, warranties, loans, etc. The UCC provides standards and rules for all the states except Louisiana. The benefit is that a business in Wyoming would have the same standards as a business in Kentucky, etc. Creating universal standards and rules for commerce across America (except Louisiana) can make the process of doing cross-state business much simpler and easier to carry out. This can improve commercial efficiency in the nation.
