iStock_000004344594Small7.27.09 Feds are holding a Burr Oak Cemetery Scandal  Hearing. A congressional subcommittee  set up by Congressman Bobby Rush is meeting at the Dirkson Federal Building in Chicago.

The meeting will include testimony from Burr Oak Cemetery(families) victims. 300 graves were desecrated at Burr oak during July. Four people have been arrested. The Cook County Sheriff has the site closed as a crime scene.

The subcommittee is set up to see if Federal regulation of Cemeteries are needed. The Monday hearing  is at the Dirksen Federal Building in Chicago.

From the Chicago Tribune

“The special hearing at the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse also will consider whether the federal government should have some role in cemetery oversight.”

Hopefully the  US Congress will bring the Cemeteries in the USA  in under the regulations of the Funeral Rule.
