HB 157 provides that the residence of decedents in the care of nursing homes at the time of death shall normally be the county of residence before the entry of the decedent into the facility. HB 257 defines uniform procedures governing appointment of a guardian over an incapacitated adult who owns real property. HB 258 permits lawfully admitted aliens to perform as executors of estates.
