AFCCA Advocacy Updates March 13, 2024

The Senate President has insisted that inspections will revert to a five-year interval, as opposed to the current two-year period written into HB2140. There will not be a separate license for Alkaline Hydrolysis; instead, it will be included under the existing cremation license. This applies irrespective of the location of the cremation process. There will also need to be an amendment to define cremation to include Alkaline Hydrolysis.

HB2140 successfully passed through the rules on March 11 and will proceed to the caucus. However, advancement to the Senate Floor and the Committee of the Whole will be postponed until the issue regarding separate cremation facilities can be addressed.
