HB 395 Reedy, Rodger
LL HB 395 -- HISTORIC CEMETERIES (Reedy)
COMMITTEE OF ORIGIN: Standing Committee on Conservation and Natural Resources
This bill authorizes the Department of Natural Resources to acquire by purchase or gift the Antioch Cemetery in Clinton, Missouri, to be operated and maintained by the Division of State Parks. The cemetery is designated as a state historic site.
The bill requires the Department to allow for burials to continue until all plots have been purchased. The Department can charge no more than $100 per burial to be credited to the newly created "Antioch Cemetery Fund". The Department is not liable for the costs associated with the burial and is not responsible for active burials.
This bill is similar to HB 1556 (2020).
