MCLE Article

The public health crisis this year limited the days that the California legislature was allowed to meet for hearing, debate, and action on bills. In the limited time, the legislature gave priority to bills regarding COVID relief. As a result, many bills that were timely introduced at the beginning of the year never made it out of committee.

This past year the California Lawyers Association, Trusts and Estates Executive Committee ("TEXCOM") also found its attention and energies divided. In addition to its traditional work monitoring legislation, TEXCOM reviewed and commented on a proposed executive order for remote notarization of wills and other estate planning documents, and a range of procedural changes to address court closures due to the COVID pandemic. The review of legislation still went forward, a review that includes looking for bills of interest to members of the Trusts and Estates Section, watching the progress of those bills through the legislative process, and formulating a response to legislative staff as to how the provisions of a bill would take practical effect.
