  and excluding all land within the subdistrict from the boundaries

  adopted; or
               (2)  the expiration of a period not to exceed 30 days
  after the date on which the order was adopted as ordered by the
  board.
         Sec. 49.3187.  NOTICE AND HEARING. (a)  If the deposit is

  or intended to be used for agricultural purposes, the board shall
  adopt a resolution setting forth those findings and excluding the
  urban property or the part of the urban property as to which the
  findings are made.
         (b)  If any canals, ditches, pipelines, pumps, or other
  facilities of the district are located on land excluded under the
  resolution, the exclusion does not affect or interfere with any
  district rights to maintain and continue operation of the
  facilities as located to service land remaining in the district.
         (c)  A copy of the resolution excluding urban property from
  the district certified to and acknowledged by the secretary of the
  board must be recorded by the district in the deed records of the
  county in which the excluded property is located as evidence of the
  exclusion.
         (d)  On the passage of the resolution:
               (1)  the property excluded does not constitute a part
  of the district; and
               (2)  the owner of the excluded property:
                     (A)  has no further liability to the district or
  for any bonded or other indebtedness of the district; and
                     (B)  is not subject to further taxation by the

  the land with a potable water supply may petition the district to
  convert the proportionate water rights previously allocated for the
  land from irrigation use rights to municipal use rights for the use
  and benefit of the municipality or other municipal supplier.  The
  district shall compute the proportionate water rights available and
  shall initiate administrative proceedings to convert the
  irrigation use rights to municipal use rights.  Before the district
  is obligated to initiate the administrative proceedings, the
  municipality or other municipal supplier must deposit with the
  district the amount that the district estimates the district will
  incur as reasonable expenses and attorney's fees in those
  proceedings.  On approval of the conversion by the commission, the
  district shall deliver the water to the municipality or other
  municipal supplier in the manner those entities may agree to under
  this code.

                     (C)  an action against a former guardian of the
  former ward that is brought by a surety that is called on to perform
  in place of the former guardian;
                     (D)  a claim for the payment of compensation,
  expenses, and court costs, and any other matter authorized under
  Chapter 1155 [and Subpart H, Part 2, Subtitle Z]; and
                     (E)  a matter related to an authorization made or
  duty performed by a guardian under Chapter 1204; and
               (7)  the appointment of a trustee for a trust created
  under Section 1301.053 or 1301.054, the settling of an account of
  the trustee, and all other matters relating to the trust.
         SECTION 20.008.  Sections 34.306(a), (b), and (c), Finance
  Code, are amended to read as follows:
         (a)  Subject to Subchapter B, Chapter 111, and Chapters 112
  and 113, Estates [Chapter XI, Probate] Code, a bank may accept and
  administer a deposit account:
               (1)  that is opened with the bank by one or more persons
  expressly as a trustee for one or more other named persons; and
               (2)  for which further notice of the existence and
  terms of a trust is not given in writing to the bank.
         (b)  For a deposit account that is opened with a bank by one
  or more persons expressly as a trustee for one or more other named
  persons under or purporting to be under a written trust agreement,
  the trustee may provide the bank with a certificate of trust to
  evidence the trust relationship. The certificate must be an
  affidavit of the trustee and must include the effective date of the
  trust, the name of the trustee, the name of or method for choosing
  successor trustees, the name and address of each beneficiary, the
  authority granted to the trustee, the disposition of the account on
  the death of the trustee or the survivor of two or more trustees,
  other information required by the bank, and an indemnification of
  the bank. The bank may accept and administer the account, subject
  to Subchapter B, Chapter 111, and Chapters 112 and 113, Estates
  [Chapter XI, Probate] Code, in accordance with the certificate of
  trust without requiring a copy of the trust agreement. The bank is
  not liable for administering the account as provided by the
  certificate of trust, even if the certificate of trust is contrary
  to the terms of the trust agreement, unless the bank has actual
  knowledge of the terms of the trust agreement.
         (c)  On the death of the trustee or of the survivor of two or
  more trustees, the bank may pay all or part of the withdrawal value
  of the account with interest as provided by the certificate of
  trust. If the trustee did not deliver a certificate of trust, the
  bank's right to treat the account as owned by a trustee ceases on
  the death of the trustee. On the death of the trustee or of the
  survivor of two or more trustees, the bank, unless the certificate
  of trust provides otherwise, shall pay the withdrawal value of the
  account with interest in equal shares to the persons who survived
  the trustee, are named as beneficiaries in the certificate of
  trust, and can be located by the bank from its own records. If there
  is not a certificate of trust, payment of the withdrawal value and
  interest shall be made as provided by Subchapter B, Chapter 111, and
  Chapters 112 and 113, Estates [Chapter XI, Probate] Code. Any
  payment made under this section for all or part of the withdrawal
  value and interest discharges any liability of the bank to the
  extent of the payment. The bank may pay all or part of the
  withdrawal value and interest in the manner provided by this
  section, regardless of whether it has knowledge of a competing
  claim, unless the bank receives actual knowledge that payment has
  been restrained by court order.
         SECTION 20.009.  Section 34.307(c), Finance Code, is amended
  to read as follows:
         (c)  A bank may not exercise its right of set-off under this
  section against an account unless the account is due the depositor
  in the same capacity as the defaulted credit obligation. A trust
  account for which a depositor is trustee, including a trustee under
  a certificate of trust delivered under Section 34.306(b), is not
  subject to the right of set-off under this section unless the trust
  relationship is solely evidenced by the account card as provided by
  Subchapter B, Chapter 111, and Chapters 112 and 113, Estates
  [Chapter XI, Probate] Code.
         SECTION 20.010.  Section 59.105, Finance Code, is amended to
  read as follows:
         Sec. 59.105.  EFFECT OF SUBCHAPTER ON OTHER LAW. This
  subchapter does not affect Chapter 151, Estates [Sections 36B-36F,
  Texas Probate] Code, or another statute of this state governing
  safe deposit boxes.

  applicable provisions of Subchapter B, Chapter 111, and Chapters
  112 and 113, Estates [Chapter XI, Texas Probate] Code, govern

         SECTION 20.012.  Section 123.207, Finance Code, is amended
  to read as follows:

  guardian, receiver, trustee, executor, or administrator under the
  Estates [Texas Probate] Code or Subtitle B, Title 9, Property Code;
               (3)  act as depository for money paid to a court or
  constituting the estate of a deceased person, a minor, or an
