Gator graveyard headed to governor

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - University of Florida alumni may soon
be able to R.I.P. at their alma mater.

The Florida Legislature has passed a bill that would let the
university and others build a structure to house the ashes of
alumni on campus. Other universities would also be allowed to build
what is called a columbarium, but the University of Florida has
been the school behind the measure.

School officials needed the approval of the Legislature to get
the graveyard. The bill (SB 926) still needs the governor's signature.
