Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Cemetery Protection Act. Defines "community mausoleum". Replaces references to "cemetery association" with "cemetery authority". Replaces references to "lot" in some provisions with "interment, entombment, or inurnment right" and in the remaining provisions with "interment right, entombment rights in a community mausoleum or lawn crypt section, or inurnment right in a community columbarium". Raises the fine for violation of the cemetery rules to not less than $100 nor more than $500 for each offense (instead of not less than $5 nor more than $100 for each offense). Authorizes the cemetery authority (instead of the board of directors of the society or association) to make by-laws, rules, and regulations for the governing of the cemetery authority, to appoint policemen to protect the cemetery, and to invest funds. Provides that, unless a specific agreement has been entered into designating inviolate rights to a cemetery interment, entombment, or inurnment right, there is a presumption of abandonment if 50 years (instead of 60 years) have passed since the listed actions have been taken. Makes other changes.
