Protection of Historical Monuments and Memorials (Monitor) 

HB 395 (Black) prohibits a local government from removing historical monuments and memorials. A local government may only relocate a historical monument in certain circumstances. The bill provides that any person or entity that damages, defaces, destroys or removes an existing monument or memorial will be civilly liable for the costs to return, repair or replace the monument or memorial unless the person was authorized or the entity was the owner.
