Clay Barker spoke in support of HB2298 stating that since January 2019, the Secretary of State's Office has reviewed over 1000 statutes directly involving the Office. As part of this process, many statutes were found that needed to be updated or corrected. He stated HB2298 is a small, non-controversial product of this effort. It modernizes the process. In the business entities section, it corrects an unintended omission by adding Limited Liability Partnerships to the types of business entities subject to service of process. (Attachment 9)
