Current Bill Summary

HCS/SCS/SB 57 - This act allows a public administrator to request the court to transfer any guardianship or conservatorship case to another county. If the other county meets the venue requirements and the public administrator of the other county consents to the transfer, the court is required to transfer the case. The court with jurisdiction over the other county is required to appoint the public administrator of that county as the person's new guardian or conservator without holding a hearing.

The public administrator is required to file a final settlement of their conservatorship within thirty days of the court transferring the case. This final settlement will be filed in the court with jurisdiction over the original conservatorship and forwarded to the receiving county upon audit and approval.

This act also specifies that risk coverages procured by certain political subdivision associations shall not require the solicitation of competitive bids.

This act is similar to a provision of CCS/HCS/SB 59 (2011), SS#2/SCS/HCS/HB 111 (2011), HB 88 (2011), HB 1676 (2010), SB 151 (2011), and HB 2098 (2010).
