There has been new oversight legislation proposed for Arlington National Cemetery(ANC). Since reports of record keeping and grave miss marking surfaced at  Arlington  National Cemetery.

Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts and Claire McCaskell of Missouri are supporting the Arlington National Cemetery Oversight Act.

U.S. Sen. Scott P. Brown, R-Mass., along with a bipartisan group of senators, has introduced legislation aimed at preventing the miss-marking of graves at Arlington National Cemetery in the wake of a series of revelations regarding the mishandling of remains of U.S. soldiers.

Mr. Brown said the Arlington National Cemetery Oversight Act would give Congress direct enforcement power over operation of the cemetery and impose new management requirements to prevent future cases of what he called “egregious mismanagement” at the cemetery.

Recent hearings into problems at the cemetery revealed as many as 6,600 graves may have been miss-marked at the cemetery.
