GUARDIAN-DISABLED ADULTS                                                   

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Guardians for Disabled Adults Article of  the  Probate      
   Act of 1975. Provides that a temporary guardian may be appointed for a      
   disabled  adult  pending  the completion of a citation hearing for the      
   removal of a representative.  Exempts Public Guardians and the  office      
   of  State Guardian from provisions prohibiting a guardian from placing      
   a ward in a residential  facility  without  court  order.  Sets  forth      
   standards  for  residential  placement decisions for a ward.  Provides      
   that any decision by the guardian to forgo or withdraw life-sustaining      
   treatment that is not authorized under the Health Care  Surrogate  Act      
   shall require a court order, unless the guardian is also a health care      
   agent  for  the  ward under a valid power of attorney for health care.      
   Sets forth standards for  lawful  decision-making  by  a  guardian  on      
   behalf of a ward without court review.  Effective immediately.              
          FISCAL NOTE (Ill. Guardianship & Advocacy Comm.)                     
          This legislation would have no impact on agency expenditures.        
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Changes provisions setting forth standards for decision-making by      
   a guardian on behalf of a ward to provide that decisions shall be made      
   in accordance  with  the  standards  listed,  rather  than  that  such      
   decision is lawful without court review.
