This bill, under s. 13.93 (1) (b), also renumbers ch. 777, currently titled "Actions By and Against Executors, Administrators, Heirs and Legatees," to ch. 877 to locate it within the probate code with all other statutes that relate directly to the administration of the estates of decedents.
Throughout the bill other revisions are made to modernize language and structure for the purpose of adding specific references, improving readability, and increasing conformity of the affected provisions with current style. The subdivision of long provisions and sentences into smaller numbered units is especially emphasized. In accordance with a change in drafting style, commas are added before the last item in a series. The term "which" is replaced with "that" where grammatically correct. Specific changes are explained in notes inserted by the Revisor throughout the bill.
No substantive change to any affected statute is intended to be made by this bill.

As s. 70.19 relates to assessments under s. 70.18 and as s. 70.18, as affected by ch. 366 of the laws of 1959, applies to persons possessing personal property of others regardless of capacity, the references to persons beneficially interested and the capacity of persons holding property for those persons in s. 70.19 are unnecessary after their deletion from s. 70.18.
