New York eyes converting a cemetery to one for veterans

Sen. Charles Schumer is pushing for creation of a veterans cemetery in western New York. He is backing a plan to acquire Cheektowaga's Pine Lawn Cemetery and turn it into a facility for veterans, saying that money for the project could come from the federal stimulus bill.

What a fascinating blog! Thanks for doing this. I'm a planning student, and I'm writing a paper on the land use laws around cemeteries, particularly relating to the constitutionality of religious expression. You've given me plenty of paths to follow.
