House Bill 588 was a bill introduced to the Alabama House of Representatives by Representative Ronald Johnson, which would allow the commissioner of the Alabama Funeral and Cemetery Preneed Consumer Protection Fund to inspect the records of any person or business that sells preneed funeral contracts.
