Money for Cemeteries

This past summer, Delaware passed Senate Bill 256, which, among other things, established a Distressed Cemetery Fund that will be used to help restore abandoned cemeteries. It makes me wonder if something similar could happen in Pennsylvania, though considering our funding struggles (in Philadelphia especially), it might be unlikely.

It seems like a great idea though. Even if we could allocate a dollar or two of taxpayer money towards a fund like this, it would be something. They'd just have to figure out how to distribute it.

I vote YES! Pennsylvania has some beautiful, old, historic cemeteries, neglected and in shambles. As a Pennsylvanian, I'd happily pay towards a fund of this type!
