Cemetery Preservation Bills
I'm currently outlining a new writing project, one of a sort I've never done before: legislation.
I'm trying to put together a bill that will mandate cemetery security and maintenance in Kentucky, and one has only to look at the declining state of historic graves in our fair Commonwealth to see why this is necessary. I'm also working on a similar bill aimed at the national level.
Thousands of bills die before they ever get anywhere, and many more die as soon as they get their foot in the door. I have no illusions about the chances of success in this venture, but someone has to try. And as Han Solo said, "never tell me the odds."
