    (a) A notarial act performed under federal law has the same effect under the law of this State as if performed by a notary public of this State, if the act performed under federal law is performed by:

    (c) The signature and title of an officer described in subdivision (a)(1), (2), or (3) of this section shall conclusively establish the authority of the officer to perform the notarial act. (Added 2017, No. 160 (Adj. Sess.), § 1, eff. July 1, 2019.)
