BOISE – The Idaho Senate State Affairs Committee made relatively short work Monday of approving an update to the state’s notary public laws.

The bill cleared the committee unanimously after a series of questions from senators to an official from the Idaho Secretary of State’s office focusing on the fees and mechanisms outlined in the measure.

Unlike in the House – where a handful of lawmakers objected to the bill on grounds of international concerns, references to the United Nations, and concerns about uniform laws – the bill quickly cleared the Senate panel Monday morning and headed to the full Senate.

The controversy in the House lead one lawmaker to force a full reading of the bill that lasted more than an hour. But it finally passed House in a 63-7 vote.

It still needs passage there and the governor’s signature to become law.
