RI Veterans Memorial Cemetery (180-RICR-20-00-1)

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 00:04:32 -0400

This Technical Revision is being promulgated to provide information unintentionally omitted from the previous Concise Explanatory Statement. The full Concise Explanatory Statement is as follows: This rule is being adopted due to significant formatting changes (as required by RI General Laws, Section 42-35-2.11) and reorganization of the previous version of the rule, Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery Rules & Regulations, which will be repealed. Additional changes made to the rule include: -Clarifying the authority for enforcement of cemetery rules rests with the Director of Veterans Affairs, or his or her designee, and instituting discretion with the Cemetery Administrator for increased flexibility with burial scheduling; -Eligibility criteria and interment policies have been updated; -Graveside adornment rules have been consolidated and further clarified; -The general cemetery rules were revised to reflect best practices of other veterans cemeteries, with specific guidance taken from the National Cemetery Administration; -A section on the process for having monuments placed in the cemetery was added. -Certain comments and testimony received after a public hearing on May 6, 2016 were incorporated as part of the proposed revisions and additional clarification were made to the rule as a result of the public hearing held on July 7, 2017. Public comments not incorporated in the rule relate to concerns that that the provisions in § 1.6 give complete discretion to the Administrator of the Veterans Cemetery regarding what displays of placards, banners or flags will be allowed, and banning the display of “adornments” that are “offensive.” Commenter stated that based on a previous court decision, this could be considered a violation of the First Amendment. The regulation was not revised based on this comment because it is the Office of Veterans Affair’s position that the case cited involves a ban on religious expression, while the RI Veterans Memorial Cemetery (RIVMC) regulations prohibit partisan activities. Likewise, the requirement for the Administrator to approve placards, banners, and flags is also consistent with federal regulations (See 38 C.F.R. 1.218(9)). Any decisions by the Administrator may be appealed to the Director, Office of Veterans Affairs in accordance with § 1.1(F). Finally, the placement of adornments as provided in § 1.6(E) that are respectful and non-hazardous is consistent with the mission of RIVMC. Those not explicitly permitted under this section will be removed. The same appeal right is provided if a visitor feels an adornment was removed improperly.
