added by chapter 871 of the laws of 1977, is amended to read as follows:
S 1501. Declaration of policy.
  The  people  of this state have a vital interest in the establishment,
maintenance and preservation of [public] burial grounds and  the  proper
operation of the corporations which own and manage the same.  This arti-
cle  is  determined  an  exercise  of the police powers of this state to
protect the well-being of our citizens, to promote  the  public  welfare
and  to  prevent cemeteries from falling into disrepair and dilapidation
and becoming a burden upon the community,  and  in  furtherance  of  the
public  policy  of  this  state  that cemeteries shall be conducted on a
non-profit basis for the mutual benefit of plot owners  therein.    THIS
VITAL  INTEREST  SHALL BE PROTECTED AND THE UNIQUENESS OF THESE ENTITIES
SHALL BE AFFIRMED BY PROVIDING THE STATE  WITH  THE  RESPONSIBILITY  FOR
SOLE  JURISDICTION  OF THE REGULATION OF CEMETERIES AS SET FORTH IN THIS
ARTICLE.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.



 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
