Summary as passed: (all summaries)

Fiduciaries; permission to notarize.  Clarifies that a notary named in a document for the purposes of receiving notices or as a fiduciary shall not be disqualified from notarizing the document for that reason alone. Currently, a notary so named is prohibited from acting as a notary, regardless of whether he is a party to or has a beneficial interest in the document. The bill also repeals the provision requiring those commissioned as electronic notaries to be sworn in twice, once as a notary and once as an electronic notary.
