Flawed SC Cemetery Laws

South Carolina's Cemetery Laws are flawed and should be rewritten. Our lawmakers have been doing nothing more than applying patches in response to public outcry.

Some landowners who have cemeteries located on their property are preventing descendants from visiting and maintaining the graves of their love-ones. A cemetery is a place not only for the burial of the dead, but for an expression of love and respect by the living for the dead. Descendants should have the Private Property right of burial, visitation, maintenance and beautification of graves.

South Carolina lawmakers need to compare their current cemetery laws against what other "more progressive" states have done. Our governor should also hire a consulting firm who specializes in cemetery law. Only then will our cemetery laws be rewritten with intelligence.

Things need to change... send your e-mails of concern to Governor Mark Sanford.
