Lawmakers to Consider Funeral Protest Bill - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock


Lawmakers to Consider Funeral Protest Bill

With the special session ending Tuesday, the legislature can now consider other items on its expanded agenda.

One item on the list is a proposal to ban protest demonstrations at funerals. Senator Robert Duncan of Lubbock wrote the bill after a group from Kansas disrupted a soldier's funeral in Dimmit. If passed, the bill would make it a class B misdemeanor to protest within 500 feet of a funeral service.

The ban would be in effect one hour before to one hour after a service.
