Recently, the Senate Judicial Proceeding (JPR) Committee held a positive hearing on SB 678, however, it has yet to move for a vote. We need you to email your Senate JPR member and urge them to please Move and Support SB 678 The Remote Online Notary Bill.
Remote online notarization streamlines the sales transaction and allows for increased flexibility when it comes to closings – especially in Maryland’s rural areas.   When implemented with appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy and security of consumers (which SB 678 has outlined in detail), online notarization results in a more accessible, modernized, and verifiable way to have critical transactions notarized.
