     AN ACT relating to guardianship and conservatorship for disabled persons.
     Amend KRS 387.605 to require that a court, in appointing a guardian or conservator for a disabled person, shall first consider appointing an individual already holding a durable power of attorney for that disabled person.


     HCS - Add an amendment to KRS 387.570 to provide that a jury trial is not necessary in disability cases when the county attorney, the respondent or the respondent's attorney, and the respondent's representative all agree to waive the trial.
     HFA (1, R. Wilkey) - Require that a disability determination hearing be held by jury if demanded by any party; in the absence of such a demand, permit the court to hold the hearing with or without a jury.
