States Consider Legislation on Notary Bonds

States Consider Legislation on Notary Bonds 

State legislatures continue to examine notary bond requirements, continuing on last year’s uptick in notary legislation. This year’s legislation is trending toward revisions to existing requirements rather than adopting the model legislation from the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Law that states considered in 2017, which resulted in a new bond requirement in some states. Legislation is pending in Illinois (SB 3443) and Missouri (SB 1023/SB 2590). Legislation was enacted in West Virginia (SB 4207). Bills failed in Florida (SB 1042/HB 771) and Kentucky (SB 135/HB 333).
