Summary as passed House: (all summaries)
Electronic notary public; evidence of identity; requirements. Allows, in the case of an electronic notarization, for satisfactory evidence of the identity of a signer to be based on (i) video and audio conference technology that permits the notary to communicate with and identify the principal at the time of the notarial act, and confirmation of identity of the principal by use of biometric data or (ii) video and audio conference technology that permits the notary to communicate with and identify the principal at the time of the notarial act, and a Personal Identity Verification card issued in accordance with standards established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. An electronic notarization may be made even though the signer is not in the presence of the notary if the notary relies on such evidence. The bill also eliminates the requirement that electronic notaries submit with their registration various specific information regarding the device used to create an electronic signature. The bill also clarifies that a person commissioned as an electronic notary need not first be commissioned as a notary.
