Johnson & Weinberg Bill to Ensure Fairness in Burial Costs Now LawAssemblyman Gordon Johnson and Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg issued the following statements on the signing of legislation they sponsored to ensure fairness for religious or charitable organizations that provide assistance to their members in their greatest time of need, by providing burial plots for those who have passed.
Signed into law last week, the bill (S1146/A2619) excludes certain conveyances of graves, crypt and niches from the 15% fee that cemetery companies currently charge. The exemption applies to corporations or associations organized not for profit exclusively for religious or charitable purposes.
