Amends the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act. Provides that the Attorney General may promulgate rules establishing the maximum fees that may be charged for other immigration assistance services that the Attorney General determines by rule may be appropriately performed.

Deletes a provision requiring the Attorney General to issue rules related to immigration services by January 1, 1995. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that the minimum fee schedule set forth in specific provisions of the Notary Public Act shall apply to any person that provides or offers to provide immigration assistance service (instead of immigration consultants) performing the services described therein.
