A few weeks ago the state of Connecticut created quite an uprising when it announced that due to budget cut backs it was going to stop regulating funeral homes in the state.

Less than a week after the announcement the state retracted it?s statement and said they would still be overseeing funeral home regulations. Many think the retraction was due to concerns voiced by thousands.

There was quite a discussion about this topic on the site in the comments of each article. Some readers totally against the end of regulation others think that some states regulate to much, and then there are some states that don?t regulate enough.

The discussion question we want to pose this week is: Are the regulations states put on funeral homes to strict or not strict enough?

Funeral Homes are Struggling to Keep Their Doors Open

Ryan Thogmartin - August 13, 2017

This is a topic and conversation that does not get talked about or covered enough. We all want to put the blame on cremation and ignore the fact that many of the issues facing funeral homes aren't because families choose cremation but because of bad business decisions of many funeral directors who don't want to change or accept cremation.
