PUBLIC
BILL SUMMARY For AMENDMENTS TO THE UNIFORM PROBATE CODE

JOINT COMMITTEE COMMITTEE ON COLORADO COMMISSION ON UNIFORM STATE LAWS
Date Sep 18, 2020      
Location HCR 0112



Amendments to the Uniform Probate Code - Public Testimony & Commission Discussion


02:05:35 PM  

Darla Daniel, Co-legislative Liaison for CBA Trust & Estate Section and chair of the subcommittee looking at the UPC 2019 revisions, summarized the two-part review conducted to date. The Part I review regarding the modernization of language and removal of outdated terms is complete and approved by the subcommittee. The subcommittee hopes to have CBA Legislative Policy Committee approval and language ready for a bill by November or December. The Part 2 review contains more substantive changes to the probate code dependent on the Uniform Parentage Act, which has not been adopted in Colorado, so that review is proceeding at a slower pace. The CBA will continue to monitor the status of the Parentage Act and if enacted, will complete the review and report back.

      The commission discussed whether there was value in proceeding with a draft before getting the language from the section. The commission will consider moving forward on this at the next meeting to give the CBA a chance to approve and provide a draft of the Part 1 changes regarding language modernization. Part 2 changes regarding more substantive changes based on the Parentage Act will not be ready for introduction this session.
