House of Representatives
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session

Subject: Title 20 - Further providing for disposal of Decedent's remains

When we return for Session, I will be introducing legislation that would further providing for the right to dispose of a decedent’s remains.

There are times when there are two or more persons with equal standing as next of kin who cannot agree on the disposition of the decedent’s remains. This bill would use the “majority rule” in that if there are two or more in equal standing as next of kin, the authority to dispose shall be determined by the majority.

If you have any questions on this bill, please contact Margaret Tricarico at mtricari@pahouse.net or 717-772-5568 (Democratic Caucus Ext. 6168).

Thank you.
