Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Probate Act of 1975.   Makes  a  stylistic  change  in      
   provisions concerning the powers and duties of the public guardian.         
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Deletes everything. Amends the  Probate  Act  of  1975.  Provides      
   that, if the public guardian is appointed guardian of a disabled adult      
   and  the estate of the disabled adult is reduced to less than $25,000,      
   the court  may,  upon  petition,  notice,  and  approval  of  a  final      
   accounting,   discharge   the   public   guardian   and  transfer  the      
   guardianship to the State guardian. Provides that the public  guardian      
   shall  submit  to  the  court  affidavits  concerning the services the      
   public guardian has provided for the benefit of a ward. Provides  that      
   the  public  guardian  may  petition  the  court  for  the  payment of      
   reasonable and appropriate fees on not less than a quarterly basis, or      
   sooner as approved by  the  court.  Provides  that,  when  the  public      
   guardian  is appointed temporary guardian of a disabled adult under an      
   emergency  petition  and  the   court   finds   that   the   immediate      
   establishment  of a temporary guardianship is necessary to protect the      
   disabled adult's health, welfare, or estate, the  public  guardian  is      
   entitled  to  reasonable  and  appropriate  fees for the period of the      
   temporary  guardianship,  including  fees  directly  associated   with      
   establishing the temporary guardianship. Effective immediately.
