Analysis:

Senate Bill 68 makes a “housekeeping” change regarding information the Department of State Police must provide to the Secretary of State upon request concerning the identity or criminal history of a Notary Public applicant. Previously, the Department of State Police was required to furnish information from its central bureau of criminal identification in response to a request from the Secretary of State. According to the Secretary of State’s Commercial Registries Manager, Tom Wrosch, the central bureau of criminal identification is being phased out as part of SB 68. The change will not impact the quality or quantity of information provided to the Secretary of State’s office when conducting a background check of Notary commission applicants.
