Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Creates the Access to Cemeteries on Private Property Act. Provides that specified persons may enter the property of another, with the landowner's consent, to discover, restore, maintain, or visit a grave, private cemetery, or abandoned cemetery. Provides that if consent cannot be obtained from the landowner, the person seeking access may file a petition in the circuit court of the county in which the petitioner has reasonable grounds to believe the grave, private cemetery, or abandoned cemetery is located for an order allowing the petitioner to enter the property to discover, restore, maintain, or visit the grave, private cemetery, or abandoned cemetery. Contains procedural requirements. Provides that the court's order may not require the landowner to make modifications to his or her property in order to accommodate access to the grave, private cemetery, or abandoned cemetery. Provides that the landowner, in the absence of willful and wanton conduct, is immune from liability in any civil suit, claim, action, or cause of action arising out of the access granted under the Act.
