Estates and Guardianship Code
Proposed Chapters

These proposed chapters are intended for consideration by the 81st Legislature. Each proposed chapter states the Revised Law, which is the text of the new law, and then provides the Source Law, which is the text of the former law from which the revised law is derived. If further explanation of either the revised law or the source law is required, a Revisor's Note is included after the source law. All substance in the source law is revised in the revised law or the reason for its omission is explained in a revisor's note.
