Other Information of Interest
California has a new penalty for notaries committing perjury.
The  certificate of acknowledgment is now executed under penalty of
perjury. According to civil code 1189, a notary public who willfully
states as true any material fact known to be false can be subject to
a civil penalty of up to $10,000 This law could apply to all
notarizations, not only acknowledgments. 

Other changes in California
According to government code 8206, notary public journal entrees for
powers of attorneys must include thumbprints. The law used to be that
only deeds affecting real property would require a thumbprint.
However, its always prudent to get thumbprints for all journal
entrees simply because it deters fraud and is the most reliable
form of identification since a thumbprint can not be forged or counterfeited.
