CMLA COVID-19 Update
March 26, 2020
Advocating for the Industry
CMLA has been hard at work advocating on your behalf as new legislation and executive orders are established to address the COVID-19 virus. We are working closely with the Colorado Governors Office, Secretary of State, State Senators, County and City Municipalities, State Trade Associations, and the Mortgage Bankers Association to ensure the mortgage industry is able to continue serving our communities.
Stay at Home Orders
CMLA's legislative team has been working with the state and each municipality in Colorado to ensure the language in their "Stay at Home" orders include our industry in their list of "essential" services.
We encourage all companies operating in Colorado to comply with the "Stay at Home" order that was issued by Governor Polis on March 25, 2020. This order designates "services related to financial markets" as "essential", which allows employees from the lending industry to work outside of their home when necessary to perform their job duties.
Remote Online Notary
We have been in contact with Senator Gardner's office as well as the MBA to support the passage of the federal "SECURE Notarization Act" legislation. This bill would enable all states to begin using remote online notarization services even if the state legislature has not passed their own remote notary legislation.
Industry COVID-19 Resources
CMLA has a new COVID-19 Resources page with links to guidance from state and federal agencies, including the GSEs.
