SB 147: Cemetery and Funeral Services; unitrust distribution method provisions; permit a cemetery to request a trustee

Voted on Monday March 20, 2017

John Pezold's thoughts

SB 147 expands the type of distribution that a cemetery can make from the required irrevocable trust fund to include the unitrust distribution payment method. The bill also gives authority to the Secretary of State to limit or prohibit any unitrust distributions where the investment practices have not resulted in sufficient protection of the perpetual care trust fund.
