CA: Bill to Protect Rights of People Under a Conservatorship (AB973) Moves Forward

A bill protecting the personal rights of people under a conservatorship passed the state senate judiciary committee Tuesday.

An ABC7 News I-Team investigation uncovered a case in which the Santa Clara County public guardian was restricting visitors to such people without a court order, even calling the police on I-Team reporter Dan Noyes when he tried to visit conservatees.

The bill, sponsored by Assm. Bob Wieckowski, D-Fremont, clarifies a conservatee’s rights to have visitors, phone calls and personal mail.

The next step is a vote by the full state Senate.

    I watched and listened to the session. Thank YOU Assembly Member Bob Wieckowski and Linda Kincaid for your efforts to protect the rights of conservatees from cruel and inhumane treatment.

    Check for Mandatory Enforcement. If it is not contained in the law, there will be too many ins and outs to never materialize. eb
