Pennsylvania Legislature Sends New POA Law Reform Measures to Governor

On June 18, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives approved  House Bill 1429 (Printer's No. 3708), thus sending the long-debated bill's new provisions on Powers of Attorney to the Governor for signing.  If, as anticipated, the bill is signed by the Governor, the new rules would be effective for POAs created on or after January 1, 2015. 

Pennsylvania pracitioners?  That means the Elder Law Institute offered by the Pennsylvania Bar Institute on July 25-26 in Philadelphia will have new relevance to your practice to prepare for the changes.  The opening session of the Institute is the always valuable "Year in Review" by elder law and estate planning specialists Marielle Hazen and Rob Clofine.

A detailed summary of the history and key provisions in H.B. 1429 is provided by Pennsylvania Attorney Neil Hendersthot on his blog.
