State Representatives John Rogers (D-Mentor-On-The-Lake) and Bob Cupp (R-Lima) introduced House Bill 464, bipartisan legislation that will modify existing Ohio Probate Law dealing with trusts and estates. The proposal will update several areas of probate law, and intends to generally address situations that current law does not take fully into account.


“This bill makes a number of important yet common sense changes to Ohio’s probate law,” Rep. Rogers said. “I am confident that this legislation will make difficult end of life decisions and planning more straightforward, especially in those cases where a family member has passed away.”


The legislation is the result of conversations with Ohio probate law experts and aims to improve the legal tools that Ohio families have access to in different circumstances.


“Probate law affects families and individuals in very personal ways. It is important to keep our probate law up-to-date to address current needs,” Rep. Cupp said.


House Bill 464 now awaits referral to a House Committee for its initial consideration.
