During its 1984 and 1985 sessions, the General Assembly enacted a number of minor technical amendments to Virginia's Uniform Commercial Code. These included both the much-needed and long-awaited change of the word "state" to "Commonwealth" throughout the Code and a series of inexplicable revisions in the Code's punctuation. The most significant of these technical changes was undoubtedly the increase in the filing fees for Article 9 financing statements filed with the State Corporation Commission. (One substantial legislative change which indirectly affects the Code was the enactment of Virginia's new "Lemon Law." Some aspects of that statute are discussed below in conjunction with the Virginia Supreme Court's recent decision on the standards for revocation of acceptance of a lemon car.)
