Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Trusts and Trustees Act. Permits a trustee to terminate a trust if it has a market value of less than $100,000 and the costs of continuing the trust will substantially impair the purpose of the trust. Outlines how distribution shall be made. Provides that a trustee who is an income beneficiary may not participate as a trustee in the exercise of termination power. Provides that the trustee shall give notice to the persons entitled to distribution at least 30 days prior to the effective date of the termination of the trust. Provides that the provisions of the Section concerning small trust termination shall not apply to trusts for domestic or pet animals.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with provisions substantially similar to the bill as introduced except that the power that a trustee has to terminate the trust and distribute the trust estate is in the trustee's sole discretion with the consent of the recipients (instead of in the trustee's sole discretion).
