Is Iowa Quietly Dealing with Remote Notarization?

Iowa lawmakers have adopted new sections into notary law that speak quietly to remote notarization, or at least seem to.  

If only this would work, then remote notarization laws could slow down while notary laws caught up and could work with them. 

If Iowa rejects a notarization because of this law, I look for there to be sword rattling from the pro-remote notarization side and the promise of a do-or-die court fight to determine if the U.S. Constitution's Full Faith and Credit Act covers notarial acts.

Section 9B.11 Requires that notarial acts in other states meet requirements from 9B.6. (It doesn't say that the act will be invalidated if not, but I guess that would be the intention.)
