Amend the bill, as and if amended, by striking page 2, lines 9-16 in their entirety and inserting the following:
/ (B) Pursuant to the provisions of this chapter, in the case of a person's disappearance where the assets of the missing person total twenty-five thousand dollars or less, a spouse or next of kin of the missing person, upon submitting a document that complies with the requirements of Section 62-1-507, may petition the court to be appointed the temporary conservator of the missing person's property for a six month period of time. For such temporary appointments, the petitioner may request a hearing on an emergency basis, with the appointment of an attorney for the missing person and the setting of a bond being temporarily waived. The appointment of a spouse or next of kin as a temporary conservator for the property of a missing person does not alter the ability of the spouse or next of kin to apply for appointment as the conservator after the expiration of the six-month period, pursuant to the remaining provisions of Part 4, Chapter 5, Title 62. Termination of the conservatorship shall occur pursuant to the provisions of Section 62-5-430, when the missing person is no longer missing, a petition for termination of the conservatorship is filed, and the court orders the termination of the conservatorship." /
