Assembly Bill No. 124 Approved

Assembly Bill No. 124 was approved by Governor Schwarzenegger on August 5, 2009.

AB 124 authorizes the appointment of a temporary manager for a private cemetery when the current manager is unable or unwilling to perform his/her duties:

This bill would, notwithstanding any other provision of law, authorize a court of competent jurisdiction, based upon the court's finding that a cemetery manager of a private cemetery has ceased to perform his or her duties due to a lapse, suspension, surrender, abandonment, or revocation of his or her license, to appoint a temporary manager to manage the property of, and certain services provided by, the private cemetery, as provided, for a limited term of 6 months or until a new licensed cemetery manager is hired. The bill would permit the court to authorize the payment of reasonable compensation for the temporary manager's services, to be paid by the trustees from available income from the cemetery, as provided.

This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
AB 124 adds Section 9723.3 to the Business and Professions Code, relating to cemeteries. You can read more about AB 124 here.
