After well over an hour of reading by Rep. Priscilla Giddings, R-White Bird, Rep. Lynn Luker, R-Boise, finally opened debate on HB 209, the bill to update Idaho’s notary laws.
“It has to do, as you all can surmise at this point, about notaries,” Luker said. “It’s about 21 pages, and the last five pages are code references because of the changes being made. The purpose behind this was to allow electronic notaries. And as the Secretary of State was looking at this, it was felt this was a good time to update our notary law. So what this is, is uniform notary law, as has been modified for Idaho.”
He said, “I would ask that you consider voting yes on this bill to update our notary law.”
