If the Bereaved Consumers Bill of Rights act does not pass the 2010 lame duck Congress. Odds are it will not happen at all. The Bill has not been scheduled for a House Vote. The Bill Hr 3655 a cemetery legislative reform bill bringing some cemeteries under the FTC Funeral Rule.
Cemetery reform is definetley needed after the Burr Oak Cemetery and Eden Memorial Park Scandal of 2009. These are horror stories beyond comprehension.
In this year of real political confusion, these basic needed reforms may fall by the way side!
The bill has engaged Democratic support but Republican Opposition.
