Senate prohibits new crematories in residential areas

The state Senate passed a bill Thursday that would prohibit new crematories from opening within 1,000 feet of a residential neighborhood.

Snellville residents complained when a crematory opened last year near their homes.

House Bill 68 would apply to stand-alone crematories not located at, or next to, a funeral home. The House must still OK the Senate version of the bill.
