Columbus - 
State Senator Kevin Bacon (R-Minerva Park) today announced that he will soon  introduce a bill that would modernize Ohio probate law. Currently, the Ohio Revised Code  contains outdated legal terminology and provisions pertaining to the field of probate law.   Bacon's bill will update these terms while increasing consistency and efficiency in Ohio's  probate courts.

"We need to update the language in the code to bring probate law in line with modern times,"  Bacon said. "The technical changes and language harmonization included in my bill will make  Ohio's probate law easier to understand and more accessible in this day and age."

Bacon noted that his proposal has the support of the Ohio Association of Probate Judges. He  introduced a similar proposal during the last General Assembly while a member of the Ohio  House of Representatives along with former Representative Sandra Stabile-Harwood.

The bill will be formally introduced in the coming days, after which it will be assigned to a  standing Senate committee for further hearings.
