   Probate  Act of 1975.  Provides that, upon receiving an affidavit that

   property or stocks or bonds of, the ward shall pay the indebtedness or      
   deliver the property, stocks, or bonds to  the  person  executing  the      
   small estate affidavit.  Effective immediately.                             
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE

          This bill would have no fiscal impact on the Judicial Branch.        
          JUDICIAL NOTE                                                        
          It is not possible to determine what impact the bill will have       
          on the need to increase or decrease the number of judges in the      
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE (DCCA)                                    
          SB 361 fails to create a State mandate.                              
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          SB 361 does not preempt home rule authority.
