Section 26-2A-9

Preservation of powers and duties of existing curators; curators become conservators on January 1, 1997.

(a) A curator appointed pursuant to Chapter 7A of this title prior to August 7, 1995, and continuing in effect on August 7, 1995, is not terminated, although the statute under which the appointment was made is repealed by Act 95-751. The curator shall continue in effect as the curator existed prior to Act 95-751, with all of the powers and duties of the curator on August 7, 1995.

(b) If, on January 1, 1997, a curator is in existence pursuant to subsection (a), the curator on that date shall be considered a conservator as provided in Chapter 2A (commencing with Section 26-2A-1) of this title, with all the power and duties of a conservator as provided in that chapter. If the powers of a curator are limited by a court, the powers granted in this subsection are limited to the same extent.
