	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 2493, Fuller. Conservators: photograph of missing conservatee.
   Existing law authorizes a court to appoint a conservator of the
person to act on behalf of a person who is unable to adequately
provide for his or her personal needs, or a conservator of the estate
to act on behalf of a person who is substantially incapable of
managing his or her financial resources. Existing law also authorizes
a court to appoint a conservator of the estate of a person who is
missing and whose whereabouts are unknown. Under existing law, a
conservator of the person has the care, custody, and control of a
conservatee, except as provided.
   This bill would require, upon the establishment of a
conservatorship by the court and annually thereafter, that a
conservator of a person ensure that a clear photograph of the
conservatee is taken and preserved for the purpose of identifying the
conservatee if he or she becomes missing.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION. 1.  Section 2360 is added to the Probate Code, to read:
   2360.  Upon the establishment of a conservatorship by the court
and annually thereafter, the conservator shall ensure that a clear
photograph of the conservatee is taken and preserved for the purpose
of identifying the conservatee if he or she becomes missing.
