Description

Funeral service providers; caskets provided by third parties. Eliminates the prohibition on the sale of, or offering for sale, caskets by a person other than a licensed funeral service establishment or funeral service licensee in cases in which preneed funeral arrangements for funeral services are being made. The bill requires funeral service licensees to accept caskets provided by a third party in accordance with the requirements of federal law but makes clear that no funeral service establishment or funeral service licensee shall be required to store a casket provided by a third party when preneed arrangements for funeral services have been made. The bill also provides that any person selling or providing preneed caskets shall be subject to requirements for preneed services set forth in state and federal law. Read the Bill »
