Senate Bill 888 regarding notaries and Senate Bill 877 regarding construction law yesterday passed successfully out of the Senate Judiciary Committee. An Attorney General's opinion last year caused some concern in the legal community because it said that a change to the notary statute classified notary records as public documents. If passed by the General Assembly this year, SB 888/HB 1033 would clarify that notaries who do not take a fee do not have to keep a record of the notary's acts. Senate Bill 877 makes changes to two sections of the Mechanics' and Materialmen's Liens statute that are clerical and procedural in nature.
