New Law For PA Notary Publics

HARRISBURG – If you’re interested in becoming a notary public there is a new state law that has taken effect. Until now, Pennsylvania was one of only four states that required a state legislator’s signature in order to become a notary public. Lebanon County Sen. Mike Folmer explained that his Senate Bill 1001 simply speeds up the process by removing the need for the lawmaker’s signature. The new law also allows the Department of State to require notary applicants to submit a record of their criminal history.
