Relating to the establishment and operation of certain private family cemeteries.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 515 would provide that certain provisions of the Health & Safety Code (relating to prohibiting certain entities from establishing or operating a cemetery) does not apply to a private family cemetery that was established and operating on or before September 1, 2009, or is established and operating on land outside the boundaries of a municipality that has been owned or occupied by members of the same family for at least three generations and that is within 10 miles of the largest prison cemetery in this state.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action supports HB 515, which, even though it is a local bill, supports limited government and property rights for the people who will benefit from it.
