In fact, our key staff personnel helped craft legislation which, through use of Official Seals that are required to contain the commissioned name and expiration date of the Notary, now protects Notaries from claims of fraud. Furthermore, this legislation required the State to provide educational materials to Notaries along with their commission certificates. Many of our collective efforts have had the net effect of increasing public awareness of the important role that Notaries serve in today’s society, enhancing the overall professional stature of Notaries Public in Texas today!
