Assembly Bill Wins

AB 870

League position: Opposed.

Status:
Dead (pulled by author).

AB 1093

League position: Supported; then opposed. While the League originally supported AB 1093 and is generally supportive of remote online notarization (RON) efforts in California, this bill was amended and proved to be problematic due to an issue with interstate recognition. The bill’s author pulled the bill at our coalition’s request and agreed to continue working on RON in the future. 

Status: Dead (pulled by author).

Status: Dead (employee-monitoring bill pulled from Assembly Privacy Committee because it did not have the votes).
