Homestead and other exemptions.  Raises the homestead exemption from real or personal property not exceeding $5,000 in value to personal property not exceeding $5,000 in value and real property not exceeding $25,000 in value. The bill also adds certain specific items of personal property to the list of what a debtor may hold exempt from creditor process and increases from $2,000 to $5,000 the value of an automobile that may be held as exempt.
