From Texas–changes to the guardianship laws

First the story:

Now the most interesting quote:

A stream of witnesses told emotional guardianship horror stories alleging total disregard of any due process by the courts, denial of access to loved ones and expensive legal battles stemming from

questionable court actions.

While apparently the law did not pass, apparently there is much, much malcontent down in Texas on guardianship issues.  From the comments I get, it is the same here.  Illinois has a great law, the Illinois Probate Act, but for some Judges and court connected attorneys and agencies, it is in pristine condition, because apparently it is little used and quoted in the Illinois courtrooms.
