Rs 25:952 Legislative Findings And Declaration Of Intent

§952. Legislative findings and declaration of intent

The legislature hereby finds that Louisiana law has never permitted, recognized, or

sanctioned ownership rights in human remains and that such materials are explicitly

exempted from property concepts under both common and civil law. The legislature further

finds that the trade in or commodification of human remains fosters the looting and

desecration of cemeteries and other sacred sites. The legislature further finds that existing

state laws do not adequately protect against the illicit trade in human remains and that such

trade needs to be stemmed in order to minimize looting and desecration of cemeteries. The

legislature also finds and declares that there is a need for a central state entity to manage the

enforcement of human remains laws and that, because the attorney general is already the

statutory counsel to the Louisiana Cemetery Board, as well as being charged with civil

enforcement of the Louisiana Unmarked Human Burial Sites Preservation Act and the

Louisiana Historic Cemetery Preservation Act, the attorney general is uniquely qualified to

enforce and police all illicit transactions in and commodification of human remains

contemplated by this Chapter.

Acts 2016, No. 531, §1, eff. June 17, 2016.
