Summary as introduced:

Surviving spouse's elective share; homestead allowance benefit.

The bill provides consistency with other provisions of Article 1.1 (§ 64.2-308.1 et seq.) of Chapter 3 of Title 64.2, which governs the elective share of the surviving spouse of a decedent dying on or after January 1, 2017, which was enacted in 2016. The bill contains an emergency clause. This bill is identical to HB 1516.
