Arkansas Public Official Bond Update

What’s the New Surety Bond Requirement?

In Arkansas, a new bill titled HB1763 requires all cabinet-level department secretaries to post a $10,000 surety bond to secure the faithful performance of their duties.

The new law consolidates several agencies so that some public official bonds will be eliminated, including the $10,000 bond requirement for the Executive Director of the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission, the $25,000 bond requirement for the State Forester, the $10,000 bond requirement for the Director of the Department of Parks and Tourism, the bond required for the State Forester’s assistants who disburse funds, the bond required for the Secretary-treasurer of the Veterinary Medical Examining Board, the bond requirement for employees of the Arkansas Motor Vehicle Commission, and the fidelity bond required for the employees of the Bank Commissioner.
