Advocacy Updates & Priorities

We are committed to making sure the regulatory environment for our members is stable. Since our inception, WFDA members have been sharing their support for or concerns with Wisconsin statutes and administrative rules that impact our profession. 

The following policy statements encompass WFDA’s agenda for the 2023-2024 legislative session.

  • Ensure competition for funeral services: Support current anti-combination law for funeral homes and cemeteries.
  • Support enforcement of Wisconsin’s winter burial statute.
  • Support utilizing technology for cremation permit viewing.
  • Support for Legislative Council Study Committee on Uniform Death Reporting Standards.
  • Support more disclosure to families regarding anatomical gifts.
