Senate Judiciary Committee to Hold Hearing on July 12

Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) introduced S.1744, the Guardian Accountability and Senior Protection Act, last fall.  The bill would provide funding for state courts to assess and improve adult guardianship and conservatorship proceedings.  The bill would direct the Attorney General to create a pilot program to identify procedures for conducting background checks on prospective guardians and conservators and would promote information technology to better monitor conservatorships. The bill is scheduled to be considered by the Full Committee on the Judiciary on July 12.
