Removal of certain monuments or memorials for war veterans. Provides that upon the affirmative vote of a governing body of a locality in which a monument or memorial is located, the locality may relocate the monument or memorial to a museum of the locality's choice. However, if the monument or memorial is not owned by the locality, the owner of the monument or memorial shall be given an opportunity to reclaim or relocate the monument or memorial within six months of notice from the locality. After six months, if the owner of such a monument or memorial declines the opportunity to reclaim or relocate the monument or memorial in question, the locality shall be authorized to proceed with the relocation. The bill also repeals an 1890 Act of Assembly related to the placement of a statue in the City of Alexandria. Read the Bill »
