The bill allows an adult with a disability (adult) to enter into a
supported decision-making agreement (agreement) with a member of the
supportive community. Under the agreement, the adult authorizes the

member of the supportive community to do any of the following:
  • Provide supported decision-making, including assistance in
understanding the options, responsibilities, and
consequences of the adult's life decisions, without making
those decisions on behalf of the adult;
  • Assist the adult in accessing, collecting, obtaining, and
understanding information that is relevant to a given life
decision from any person; and
  • Assist the adult in communicating the adult's decisions to
appropriate persons when expressly authorized by the adult.
The agreement may be in any form but is only valid if it contains
certain information and is signed by the adult and the member of the
supportive community in the presence of 2 or more attesting witnesses
who are 18 years of age or older, or a notary public.
The bill requires any person who receives the original or a copy of
the agreement to rely on the agreement. A person is not subject to
criminal and civil liability and does not engage in professional
misconduct for an act or omission if the act or omission is done in good
faith and in reliance on an agreement.
