Urgent: Association issues call to action on electronic remote notarization

The New York Credit Union Association on Monday issued an urgent call to action on legislation (A399-A/S1780-B) that would make electronic remote notarization a permanent part of New York State law.

“We’ve heard from credit unions across New York about how critical the temporary use of remote electronic notarization has been to their members and operations during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the call to action from the Association’s advocacy team stated. “Now we need to make sure our legislators understand why this important, common-sense solution should be made permanent.”

The State Senate has already passed the bill, and on Friday, May 7, the Assembly will hold a joint-committee hearing to explore the legislation. More information about the public hearing and how to submit testimony can be accessed here.

Visit the Association’s Action Center today to send a pre-drafted letter in support of the bill to lawmakers in your district, as well as members of the Assembly Banks, Government Operations, Consumer Affairs and Protection, and Judiciary Committees.

The Association sincerely thanks you for your engagement and support on this important legislative matter.
