Bill Summary

The electronic recording technology board (board), which was created in 2016, makes grants to counties to establish, maintain, improve, or replace their electronic filing systems. These grants are from surcharges collected by county clerk and recorders and transmitted to the state for deposit in the electronic recording technology fund. The act makes the following changes related to the board:

  • Delays the repeal and sunset review of the board by 4 years so that it will take place just over 10 years after the board's creation;
  • Extends the surcharge that is collected by county clerk and recorders and transmitted to the board;
  • Extends the board's annual reporting requirement about its grants for 4 more years and requires an additional 5-year report about the overall success of the program;
  • Permits the board to make grants to a county to improve the security of its general information technology systems, if the improvement is necessary to improve the security of the county's electronic filing system; and
  • Specifies that the board may approve a grant application to establish, maintain, improve, or replace an electronic filing system, notwithstanding that a portion of the grant will be used to enable the system to receive, store, manage, and provide online access to public documents that are maintained by the county clerk and recorder but that are not related to real property.
    (Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
