Legislation (dead): adult guardianships

01/17/2017, Legislation, Guardianship/Conservatorship of Adults - Protected Person

SB 501 would have required a court to appoint counsel for adult protective proceedings (including guardianships) upon request, provided that the court holds hearing, while SB 502 would have required the court to a hold hearing for any petition for appointment of a fiduciary or guardian filed by a county public guardian and require counsel to be appointed for such hearings.  Both bills died in the Ways and Means Committee, although SB 502 first received a favorable report from the Judiciary Committee.
