Too Close For Comfort

By  | 

Lieutenant Governor Pat Quinn says he's introducing legislation that will prevent protests at funeral services. Quinn says the "let them rest in peace act" is a response to a series of demonstrations at funeral services for military personnel. The act applies to all funerals and memorial services. It creates a 300-foot buffer zone between protesters and the site of funeral services. The 300-foot buffer zone would be in effect from 30 minutes before to 30 minutes after the funeral.
