The House passed the CUNA-supported Securing and Enabling Commerce Using Remote and Electronic (SECURE) Notarization Act by voice vote Monday. The bill would authorize the use of remote online notarization and create national standards and protections for its use.
"The national framework established by this bill would complement existing state laws and allow states the flexibility and freedom to implement their own remote notary standards while ensuring consumer protections,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “We thank the House for moving this bill forward, and urge the Senate to take it up and make remote online notary services a permanent option for consumers.”
The bill passed the House in the previous Congress as well.
