Recent California notary law changes.
One of the most critical changes in California notary law was that signers need proper 
identification even if they are personally known to the notary public.  This new law 
came about because too many notaries claimed they knew a signer that they either 
didn't know, or didn't know well, and notarized them without proper identification.  
Many fraudulent notarizations may have come about for this reason.  Another new 
important change is that California notaries public must certify under the penalty of 
perjury that the notary certificate they are signing is true and correct.
