FSGA 7.44 Review Survey

FSGA has begun a 3 year systematic review of Chapter 744 to stay relevant and responsive to the same action taken by RPPTL and perceived pressures coming regarding guardianship in the press.  We are reaching out for input from anyone in our membership.

The review has broken out sections of similarly grouped statutes in the Chapter for a 3 month review.  The second meeting in the 3 month plan is to test and get feedback on some specifically proposed language changes.  A survey is put together (link below) and was sent out to FSGA members.  This survey identifies the committee's drafted statutory language and seeks input on whether people agree or disagree with these proposals.

 The feedback from this survey will then be used to improve the proposed changes and whitepapers on the topics.   The final meeting will be to incorporate the feedback from this survey.

 The goal of this approach is to tap into as many great minds as possible and the greatest exposure across the state.  Hopefully, where there is consensus this will aid in getting the legislation passed because of the groundwork laid.

 Thanks for your input - if you have specific questions about the committee please contact lancem@omplaw.com
