Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Safe Deposit Box Opening Act.

Provides that with letters of office the public administrator may remove the contents from the safety deposit box, but without letters of office only an inventory may be conducted. Provides that the lessor shall open the box for a public administrator with an affidavit regardless of whether the decedent's key or combination is available. Makes other changes.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that a lessor who provides access to a safety deposit box to a public administrator under the new provisions shall not be liable to any person as a result of the lessor's actions in compliance with the new provisions.
