Revise Title 46-1-313 of the TCA for Geocaching purposes.

Title 46-1-313 of Tennessee Code Annotated, prohibits the new placement of geocaches within cemeteries in Tennessee. Specifically, "(a) No person shall willfully destroy, deface, or injure any monument, tomb, gravestone, or other structure placed in the cemetery, or any roadway, walk, fence or enclosure in or around the cemetery, or injure any tree, plant or shrub, or hunt or shoot, play at any game or amusement, or loiter for lascivious or lewd purposes in the cemetery, or interfere, by words or actions, with any funeral procession or any religious exercises."

This petition is to revise the outdated law. The GPS game of Geocaching has taken players to cemeteries that have been very interesting, learned history and visited the grave sites of many respected politicians, military heroes and celebrities.
