The Bereaved Consumers Bill of Rights Act costs 23 cents per family. That is Washington Watch’s breakdown on the Cemetery reform legislation(from the CBO-Congressional Budget Office- Report) also known as the Bereaved Consumers Protection Act.

The legislation will extent the funeral rule to cemeteries and funeral vendors.

H.R. 3655
The Bereaved Consumer’s Bill of Rights Act of 2009
Costs $0.23 per family


The Legislation was introduced because of the Burr Oak Cemetery Scandal near Chicago.

    My suggestion is to amend the bill to include the following:

    A requirement that consumers have the option to elect alkaline hydrolysis for their final disposition method. Alkaline hydrolysis is defined as the decomposition of human remains by means of water and alkali that results in pathogen-free remains.

    This pending bill is an opportunity to create a law that would make alkaline hydrolysis dispositions a right of consumers. It would have a major impact on air and water quality, plus save a lot of energy.

    Here is a link to find your representative: Please ask your representative to include this amendment.

    It would be excellent if an option for alkaline hydrolysis disposition were placed in funeral rule 1 and funeral rule 2.
