SB18-255 - Electronic Documents And Signatures Vehicle Titles

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the use of electronic formats in the issuance of certificates of title for vehicles.

Current law provides that a record may not be denied effect merely because it is electronic. The bill clarifies that this applies to documents needed to obtain a certificate of title and electronic signatures. The bill also clarifies that a written power of attorney is not needed merely because a record, document, or signature is in an electronic form. The department need not implement an electronic system as a result of these changes.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
