The Secure Notarization Act of 2023, S.1212, was introduced on April 19 in the Senate. It joins the House bill, H.R.1059, which the House approved by voice vote this past February. NAIFA supports this legislation.

 S.1212, authored by Sens. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) and Mark Warner (D-VA), would permit the use of Remote Online Notarizations (RONs) anywhere in the country. The bill would authorize every notary in the country to perform RONs. It would also require the use of fraud prevention mechanisms like tamper-evident technologies and multi-factor authentication.

 Prospects: The Secure Notarization Act is strongly supported by NAIFA as well as by a wide-ranging coalition of allied interests. While the bill may run into obstacles due to competing priorities and limited floor time in the Senate, its supporters are optimistic that it will be enacted into law before year-end.
