HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Majority rule by survivors would resolve disputes over what to do with the remains of a dead person under a bill that's on its way to the Pennsylvania state Senate.
The House voted unanimously on Tuesday in favor of a proposal that says that when at least three people with equal standing can't agree, then the majority gets to decide.
If they can't reach a majority decision, it'll be up to a judge to determine what happens.
Current law says if two or more people have equal standing and can't agree, then a judge has to decide who had the closer relationship with the dead person.
