Analysis:

A new executive order from the District of Columbia Mayor authorizes the Secretary of the District to publish regulations concerning Notaries, including rules to establish and amend fees. Currently, D.C. Bill 112 that is before the D.C. Council requires the Mayor to adjust the schedule of fees to be charged by Notaries Public from time to time whenever the license, fee, or other fee that a Notary is required to pay to obtain or renew a commission is increased. Since the Council has not yet passed this bill, the timing of the Mayor issuing Executive Order 2016-31 raises a question concerning the status of the legislation.
