NAELA's Statement for the Record on Conservatorship/Guardianship Reform
Last week, the Senate Judiciary Sub-committee on the Constitution held a hearing: Toxic Conservatorships: The Need for Reform. NAELA submitted a statement for the record that focused on the need for reform, including how funding could assist states in updating their laws and providing training and resources. In its statement, NAELA urged Congress to fund a Guardianship Court Improvement Program (GCIP), which would bring together stakeholders to develop plans for systematic reform.
