Personal Directives Act
First Reading: March 23, 2021
This Bill makes valid a personal directive executed in the "virtual presence" rather than the physical presence of a witness if certain conditions are met.
1 Section 2 of Chapter 8 of the Acts of 2008, the Personal Directives Act, is amended by adding immediately after clause (l) the following clause:
- (la) "presence" means physical presence except where otherwise permitted by Section 3A;
- 3A (1) Two persons are in each other's virtual presence if both persons can clearly see and hear the other over a secure electronic device.
