If you haven't been paying attention to the Connecticut Legislature in action, the below introduced bills may be of interest to you. If you are for/against, I suggest you contact your elected Representative & Senator.

HB 6251 - makes it a felony for a notary charged with "unauthorized practice of law." Why just notaries? "UPL" can be done by any person not admitted as an attorney in CT.

SB 837 - DOUBLES the notary application/renewal fee from $60 to $120. Also INCREASES the "change of address notification" fee from $5 to $15 ... IF you decide to notify the Secy. of State that you've changed your address. There is NO FEE OR PENALTY if you don't notify the SOTS that you've moved and just call when you don't get your commission renewal notice expires.

HB 6139 - INCREASES the "per notarization" fee from $5 to $10 and mileage will now float with the IRS business reimbursement rate. OLD issue: What's "a notarization"? The Secy. of State's office has never officially (in state law) defined it. Is it per signature being notarized or, as some ARGUE and define it, husband & wife at the same time in one notarization block is a "notarization" at $5, not two individual notarizations at $10.
