NC Senate Bill 1202

Notary Law Update: NC Senate Bill 1202

State: North Carolina

Summary:

Senate Bill 1202 reports that the funding for one full-time Notary investigator position in the Secretary of State’s office has been eliminated due to budget shortfalls.

Signed:  July 01, 2010

Effective:  July 21, 2010

Chapter: 2010-123

Affects:

Makes technical, clarifying and other modifications to the current North Carolina operations and capital improvements appropriations acts.

Changes:
  1. Eliminates funding for 1 full-time Notary investigator in the Secretary of State’s office.
Analysis:

Due to budgetary shortfalls, the General Assembly of North Carolina acted to eliminate funding for one full-time Notary investigator in the Secretary of State’s office. While the funding for this position was eliminated, the position had not yet been filled, so no one actually lost a job. However, given that North Carolina rigorously investigates incidents of Notary misconduct, the lost funding for this position will set back future investigative efforts.
