ICCFA Speaking for You
The ICCFA does what no cemetery, crematory or funeral home can do alone: we speak for the entire industry. 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. In 2006, 2008 and 2010, staff and members of the ICCFA visited Capitol Hill, calling on dozens of senators and officers to explain the role of the association as a potential resource to legislators, to introduce them to the association’s model guidelines and to advocate for H.R. 1273, a bill to restore the plot and marker reimbursement allowance for veterans and their families who choose to be buried in private and religious cemeteries.
