SB 827 Electronic notary; notary to notarize document if signer is not present if identity is established.
SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)
Electronic notaries. Allows, in the case of an electronic notarization, a notary to notarize a document when the signer is not in the notary's presence if satisfactory evidence of the identity is established. Furthermore, the bill allows satisfactory evidence to be based on video or audio conference technology that permits the notary to communicate with and identify the principal at the time of the notarial act. This bill is identical to HB 2318.
