The House Judiciary Committee heard HB 1303 concerning electronic powers of attorney, trust, and wills authored by Rep. Steuerwald. The bill adds new chapters to the Indiana Code that provide parameters for creating electronic powers of attorney, trusts, and will documents as another option for creating these documents in addition to the traditional processes currently used.
A representative of the Indiana State Bar Association Task Force that worked on this proposal testified in support and responded to committee questions and concerns. The bill was amended and passed 9-1.
