Nonexoneration of debts on property of decedent; notice to creditor and beneficiaries. Provides a procedure by which a personal representative of a decedent's estate may notify a creditor of a debt on certain property in the decedent's estate that such property passes without the right of exoneration. The bill provides that if such procedure is used, the creditor may file a claim for such debt with the commissioner of accounts, and if the creditor does not timely file such claim, the personal representative shall be liable for the debt up to an amount not exceeding the assets of the decedent remaining in possession of the personal representative and available for application to the debt.
