This [Act] takes effect on July 1, 2013.

Legislative Note: Because these amendments change the proper place in which to file to perfect certain security interests, it is particularly important that States adopt a uniform effective date. Otherwise, the status of a particular security interest as perfected or unperfected would depend on whether the matter was litigated in a State in which the amendments were in effect or a State in which the amendments were not in effect. Any one State’s failure to adopt the uniform effective date will significantly increase the cost and uncertainty surrounding the affected transactions.
