Analysis:

Under voter-approved Ballot Measure 67, Oregon Secretary of State Corporation Division fees will increase February 27, 2010, contributing up to $30 million dollars to the General Fund during the 2011-2013 biennium. Among several fees that were increased by the voters in Ballot Measure 67 was the Notary Public commissioning fee. The goal was to make the Oregon Notary Public program self-supporting by raising the commissioning fee from $20 to $40, the first increase in the commissioning fee since 1989. Originally, the fee was increased by House Bill 3405 of 2009, but subsequently was put to the voters in a special election on January 26, 2010. The new commissioning fee is effective February 27, 2010 for all 4-year commissions.
