Department of Professions and Occupations; Cemetery Board. Creates the Cemetery Board at the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation for the regulation of certain cemeteries, preneed burials contracts, and perpetual care trust accounts. The bill transfers control of preneed burial contract and the administration of perpetual care trusts from the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to this newly created board. The bill prohibits cemetery companies from engaging in in-person solicitations that are misleading, fraudulent or not for the stated purpose. The bill requires the Board for Professional and Occupational Regulation to conduct a study to determine the appropriate level of regulation of cemetery companies and related trust funds. The Board is also required to determine the approximate costs to regulants, the affected businesses and the impact on consumers. The findings of the Board are required to be reported to the Governor and the 1999 session of the General Assembly by December 1, 1998. This bill is identical to SB 700.
