Chapter: 22

Affects:

Adds a new as yet uncodified section to Chapter 656 of the Nevada Revised Statutes, (NRS) amends NRS 240.030, 240.60, and 240.120, and repeals NRS 240.069

Changes:

  2. Declares that a limited-power Notary commission issued to a court reporter becomes null and void as of the effective date of the Act
  3. Makes technical changes.
Analysis:

In 1995, Nevada enacted a law allowing a court reporter to be commissioned as a Notary Public with limited powers to administer oaths and affirmations in court proceedings. The law did not authorize court reporters to perform any other notarial act, including an acknowledgment, jurat, proof of execution or copy certification. Court reporters with a limited Notary commission did not have to post a bond or keep a journal. Assembly Bill 100 now allows court reporters to administer oaths and affirmations without having to apply for a commission and declares all previously issued limited commissions invalid on July 1, 2007.
