Michigan State Attorney General Pushes Bills To Make Notary Violations A Felony
The Michigan Attorney General is pushing for passage of a pair of bills that would elevate violations of the state’s Notary Act to felonies punishable by stiff prison sentences and fines. Both measures are part of a package of legislation that would give authorities more power to investigate and punish individuals involved in mortgage fraud.
The proposed new laws — Senate Bills 252 and 253 — have passed the Senate and currently are being considered by the Judiciary Committee of the state House of Representatives.
