Notary Bulletin Tennessee Latest State To Consider Allowing Notaries To Officiate Weddings By NNA Staff on February 02, 2011 in Notary News The Tennessee Legislature is considering a bill that would permit Notaries to officiate wedding ceremonies. If passed, the Volunteer State would join Maine, South Carolina and Florida in giving Notaries the power to legally perform nuptials. Senate Bill 95, introduced by State Sen. Jim Tracy, would add Notaries to the list of public officials — such as mayors, judges and county clerks — who are already legally authorized wedding officiants. The Washington, D.C., City Council has a similar bill pending.
