Re:  Historic Cemetery Preservation

Dear Governor Davis:

I respectfully request your favorable response to proposed legislation which would form a State Historic Cemetery Commission.

We need to actively protect our historic cemeteries, one of our greatest historical resources. The final resting places of our pioneers and early settlers, who struggled and died while founding this great state, should be sacred memorials to their lives. Fulfilling these goals will maintain and promote the history represented by these early Californians for the future generations of Californians.

There is no better time than now to enact legislation that will ensure the preservation of our historic cemeteries.

Thank you very much for your anticipated support.
