Legislative guidance and support is one of the central tenets of the ICCFA’s mission. The ICCFA does what no cemetery or funeral home can do alone: we speak for the entire deathcare profession. Congress looks to us when an expert on our industry is needed. The ICCFA regularly interacts with numerous federal agencies, including the Federal Trade Commission, the General Accounting Office, the Internal Revenue Service, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as the state and federal courts.
The ICCFA keeps members informed of relevant legislative and legal activities through several vehicles, including “Washington Report,” a column that appears monthly in our publication, Memento Mori, and in Wireless, our bi-weekly e-mail newsletter.
