CHEYENNE – Wyoming lawmakers took an initial look Friday at replacing the state’s existing notary laws to allow for more signings to be done virtually and by some out-of-state residents.

Members of the Joint Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Comm- ittee were presented with an 80-page bill replacing the laws on the books governing Wyoming’s notary process. The legislation was largely compiled by the Secretary of State’s Office, which worked alongside a wide range of stakeholders in developing the initial draft.
