        Deletes everything.   Amends the Probate Act of  1975.   Provides      
   that  a person who is a resident of the United States (instead of this      
   State) is qualified to act as administrator.  Adds  the  qualification      
   that the court must find the person capable of providing an active and      
   suitable  program  of  guardianship  for  a  minor  in  order  to be a      
   guardian.  Removes the requirement that the guardian be a resident  of      
   this  State.   Permits  a guardian to nominate on behalf of a minor or      
   disabled adult.   Removes the provision  that  provides  that  if  the      
   minor  resides  out  of  the State, the court may appoint the guardian      
   without  nomination.   Provides  that   the   court   may   remove   a      
   representative  if  the representative (instead of executor) becomes a      
   nonresident of the United States.  Removes the provision  that  allows      
   the   court   to   remove   a  representative  if  the  administrator,      
   administrator  to  collect,  guardian  of  the  estate,  or  temporary      
   guardian  becomes  a  nonresident  of  this  State.   Makes  technical      
   changes.  Effective immediately.
