In The “Know-tary” – LOUISIANA – NEED ACTION TODAY 5-19-19 – RE:HB514
HB 514 will be heard this Monday, May 20th, at 10:00AM by the Committee of Civil Law and Procedure, Committee Room 4.
I have been told by the Shane Milazzo with iNotarynow and a member of the LNA that the Secretary of State has agreed and has amended HB514 to allow all commissioned notaries to perform remote online notarization (previously the bill stated that only State-wide Notaries would be allowed).
To my knowledge, the Louisiana Notary Association and many others, support HB 514.
Just a reminder – other states that have remote notarization can have their Remote Online Notary located in Virginia and a client located in Louisana (or anywhere else in the United States) and perform a Remote Online Notarization, So if Louisiana does not do this, then we will be losing business to these other states. PLEASE Do not allow that to happen!
Here is a list of those that need to be emailed and notified that HB514 is supported by the Notaries and we want to be to passed.
