Bill Would Help Out People Left Small Inheritances

State Senator Dan Feyen and State Representative Jeremy Thiesfeldt hope to help out non-blood relatives of state residents who are left smaller inheritances. Feyen says a constituent came to them who had been left less than $50,000 by an Aunt by marriage. He says they had a hearing on the bill this week. It would allow a representative designated in the will to handle small estates. He says it would be an easier way to do it without getting lawyers involved. He says they are expecting bi-partisan support for the bill.
