Legislation proposing the expansion of eligibility for burial in state cemeteries to include National Guard members and Reservists was introduced recently. 

According to current laws, state veteran cemeteries are banned from interring National Guard members and Reservists if they want to receive VA grant money for improvements to their facilities. These standards are based on rules requiring active service, reported WCAX 3 News.

The proposed legislation would allow state cemeteries to decide for themselves whether to inter an honorably discharged National Guard member, Reservist, or their spouse without affecting their eligibility for VA grants
