Quoting  the Governor in an article entitled “Governor Quinn Names Cemetery Oversight Task Force”

The Burr Oak Cemetery scandal is an outrage. I believe in providing a proper and respectful burial,” said Governor Quinn. “This task force will ensure that our loved ones are always treated with reverence and dignity.”

I am pleased that the Governor is taking his time and evaluating the situation properly. This is a wise course for funerals and cemeteries in the State of Illinois.

Comptroller Dan Hynes was offering some quick legislation, but it appears that cooler heads are prevailing.

Still the raw emotion affecting the victims of the Scandal, will continue to be hard for all to deal with.
