AALL report on authentication of state online

I saw references to this at multiple blogs, but most recently at BeSpacific - AALL's Washington Affairs office has released a 254 page report on primary legal materials on the internet. Here's part of the press release:

State-by-State Report on Authentication of OnlineLegal Resources

Access to Electronic Legal Information Committee and
Washington Affairs Office

March 2007

How trustworthy are state-level primary legal resources on the Web? The
American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) is pleased to announce the
publication of the State-by-State Report on Authentication of Online Legal
Resources that answers this very important and timely question. The
comprehensive report examines the results of a state survey that investigated
whether government-hosted legal resources on the Web are official and capable of
being considered authentic.
