Update On Virginia Digital Assets Bill and Others Around the Country

WillsAs 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

Special thanks to Brian Cohan (Attorney at Law, Law Offices of Brian J. Cohan, P.C.) for bringing this article to my attention.

Virginia Senate going to vote on their version today,,,,no study, no nothing except a good photo op. Too bad they could not wait for the Uniform Law Commission to offer a bill worth voting upon.
