AB-1194, which provides greater oversight on conservators, has passed unanimously in the California Senate BPED Committee and will move on to the Senate Appropriations Committee.


Recommended Posts

I Googled AB-1194 and found an article that summarizes it: https://a28.asmdc.org/press-releases/20210326-asm-evan-low-introduces-bill-implement-much-needed-reforms-californias

Some highlights from the article:

  • The bill was introduced in March 
  • "The systemic failures in California’s conservatorship process were magnified in a recent documentary about pop star Britney Spears."
  • AB 1194 will require nonprofessional conservators who oversee an estate worth more than a million dollars (*cough cough* Jamie) to register as a professional, help conservators get training, and require conservators to provide more transparency in their billing. 
  • It will also: 
    • Create a civil penalty of up to $50,000 if the court finds the conservator has not acted in the best interest of the client.
    • Make it clear that a conservator cannot hire or refer any business to an entity in which they have a financial interest.
    • Prohibit the conservator from being compensated from the estate in defending the compensation in the petition.
    • And other stuff but those ^ seemed the most exciting :)

But there's more!

Apparently, there are a couple of other bills being proposed, including SB 724, which would "give conservatees in California the right to obtain legal counsel of their preference." :clap1_britney_clapping_chaotic_night_yay_cheer_excited:

tbh if their "salary" is proportional to the amount of money they manage from the conservatee's estate, then the penalty should be proportional to that amount too 

a $50,000 penalty from what they've stolen from Britney, would be nothing 

(of course I know this won't even get to affect Jamie if passed, but still) 

 

But overall, great news
