Steps in the right direction
Feb 23, 2016 — Hello friends!
It looks like the momentum of this petition has reached Senator Alexander. Apparently, Sen. Alexander and Larry Spiaggi, the legislative chairman and vp of the Va Funeral Directors Association spoke with a reporter yesterday and said that the bill was in no way intended to affect people who choose home funerals and will be amended to reflect that it is meant for institutions. Its aim was to require hospitals and nursing homes that keep bodies while families make arrangements to refrigerate the body.
Let's hope that they hold true to their word and amend the wording in the bill.
