We attended the last body recycling stakeholder's meeting in Tyler yesterday.

The series of 8 meetings has been very productive. A report will be sent to Senator Nelson who requested action on the issue. A statute will have to be passed to do what has to be done. We will stay up on it and contribute as required.

Special News: Chet Robbins, Executive Director of the Texas Funeral Service Commission, said that if necessary, he would add language to the GPL about informed consent requirements if any body parts are recycled. He would add this, by administrative code rules, to the GPL. THIS IS A VERY BIG DEAL !!!

Chet said that he will go beyond the FTC Funeral Rule to improve the GPL. We take this as a big step for the commission, just for Chet to say this. We take it to mean that he feels confident enough to stand up to industry, because he knows that we, FCA, are there to support the commission.

We won a piece of ground on May 14. We are making good progress with what we all are doing.
