MEMORANDUM

Posted: December 14, 2016 12:23 PM
From: Representative Harry Readshaw
To: All House members
Subject: Co-sponsorship: Disposal of Decedent's remains (HB72)
 
I will be re-introducing House Bill 72 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.

House Bill 72 passed the House by a vote of 198-0 on April 14, 2015.

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.
