|Assembly Bill 1093, the Remote Online Notarization Act has its next hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 28th at 10am at the Capitol in Room 2100. This will be the last opportunity to make a public comment on the bill. All letters in support are due June 21st by 12pm to be included in the bill analysis. You may submit your position letter via email to: email@example.com|
Currently we, along with other stakeholders, are working with the authors office and committee staff to implement practical amendments that will ensure the bill works for everyone involved and remain the most robust RON law in the country. We believe that if the bill passes out of the senate and is signed into law, California will become the gold standard for Remote Online Notarization, creating a major opportunity for California Notaries.
For those planning to call in to deliver “me too” testimony in support, the call in number will be posted here http://sjud.senate.ca.gov/content/june-28-2022-bill-hearing the day before the hearing. We will also send out an email blast letting you know what the number is and instructions on how to use the call-in system.
Assembly Bill 2834, the Certificate Corrections bill was held under submission by the Assembly Appropriations Committee on May 19th and did not make the deadline to move forward in the legislative process. Unfortunately this means that the bill is dead for this session and will have to be reintroduced in the next legislative session.
It was not held because the appropriation was too great, which should be, by definition, why bills are "held in committee". It has been said the Appropriations Committee is where bills go to die. That happened with AB 2834.
