Colorado governor to sign bills regulating funeral homes

1 min read


DENVER (AP) — Colorado Gov. Jared Polis is set to sign two bills Friday morning that overhaul the state’s oversight of the funeral home industry after a series of gruesome discoveries, including 190 discomposing bodies in a facility, families being sent fake ashes and the unauthorized sale of body parts.

The cases put Colorado’s lax funeral home regulations — some of the weakest in the nation — in the spotlight and rocked hundreds of already grieving families. Some had ceremonially spread ashes that turned out to be fake. Others said they had nightmares of what their decaying loved ones’ might have looked like.

The proposals bring Colorado in line with most other states.
