The June 13 version mentioned by Bear900/CA, and which can be compared to the previous version here:

has some provisions that don't seem very feasible.

8231.16. (a) An online notarization platform or depository shall not have access to a notary publicís electronic signature or electronic seal.

Um, that means the online notarization platform isn't allowed to store the finished document, not even long enough to email it to the customer.

How about these:

8231.6. (a) A notary public shall keep one secure electronic journal to record each online notarial act performed by the notary public pursuant to this article.
(b) The notary public authorized to perform online notarizations shall include in an electronic journal all of the following:


(4) The electronic signature of each person whose electronic signature is being notarized.

So the signers have to be able to electronically sign the journal. Not only that, if the notary wants to do RON with platform A and also platform B, somehow the notary has to maintain ONE journal that covers both platforms, and the signers have to be able to remotely sign that one journal.

Seems to me some people were scrambling to put something together that wouldn't offend legislators and other non-technical folks, without asking any technical professionals if it was feasible.
