Dear Connecticut MAA Members,
Your urgent help is needed to amend SB-1040 Remote Online Notarization (RON) legislation, which would limit the scope of RON by excluding real estate transactions. This bill has just passed the Connecticut Senate and needs to be amended in the House.
- Why it matters: Connecticut would become the first of 44 states and the District of Columbia to enact RON with this exception. Connecticut’s real estate agents, title companies, lenders, and other stakeholders need RON to align with 21st century consumer choice expectations.
- What’s next: The House has received the Senate bill and could consider it before the Legislature adjourns in early June.
As a MAA member, we need you to contact your Connecticut House member TODAY and urge him/her to take the necessary actions to amend the scope of this bill’s provisions to include real estate transactions.
