In 1954, the National Conference of Commissioners of Uniform State Laws, having recognized the need for legislation in this area, published the Uniform Supervision of Trustees for Charitable Purposes Act, which was similar to the New Hampshire law. As has been stated, California soon passed the uniform act. Iowa (1959), Michigan (1961), Illinois (1961), and Oregon (1963) have since passed the uniform act. There are slight variations in the versions passed by the above states, but the general effect of their laws is the same. While the legislatures of these states have provided the law,they have not always provided the revenue necessary to hire the human machinery needed.
