Rep. Demmer and Gary Gehlbach, of Dixon, Present Bill in Committee

Gary Gehlbach of Dixon testified with State Representative Tom Demmer before the House Judiciary Committee on April 30 concerning a bill Gehlbach had suggested. Senate Bill 2985 requires a person executing a small estate affidavit to list and classify the debts of the decedent. The bill also requires all valid claims against the decedent’s estate to be paid before any distribution is made to any heir or person receiving any portion of the estate. Passed by a unanimous vote of the Committee members, Senate Bill 2985 now moves to the House Floor for further consideration.
