As I have previously discussed, the House of Delegates in Virginia recently passed a bill that would provide access to a testator's personal electronic accounts to the personal representative of the estate. Now, it is the Senate's turn to debate the merits of this bill. Provided here an amendment that the Senate proposed that provides a substitute to the original bill. While I have not discussed these particular bills before, the State of Maryland and North Dakota have also introduced similar legislation. Maryland Senate Bill 29 can be found here. North Dakota House Bill No. 1455 can be found here.
