Governor Signs E-Notary Legislation

May 2, 2019

On Monday, Gov. Reynolds signed SF 475, which will allow electronic notarization for business transactions in Iowa beginning July 1, 2020. ABI was part of a coalition that met last summer and fall to review model legislation and propose language that would work for Iowa. ABI member Lender Close was present at the bill signing on Monday, and you can see a photo of the signing here. This legislation was part of ABI’s regulatory reform priority for 2019.
