Special conservators of the peace. Strikes a provision that special conservators of the peace have authority in any city or county where the corporate applicant or its subsidiary holds title to real property. This provision contradicts the statutory requirement that a conservator's authority is confined to court-imposed geographical limitations within the judicial circuit where the appointment is made.
