Missouri recently passed its remote online notarization (RON) legislation. The adoption of RON has gained momentum during the COVID-19 pandemic, enabling notaries and their customers to conduct business safely.

House Bill 1655 was signed into law by Governor Mike Parson on July 6, 2020, following three years of negotiation by legislators and trade associations, including the Missouri Land Title Association. Originally, the effective date was set for July 1, 2021, but in response to COVID-19, the bill was amended to allow for RON as soon as August 28, 2020. Once live, RON will provide additional opportunities for the approximately 72,000 notaries in the state of Missouri, according to the National Notary Association (NNA).
