Umberg bill tabled until 1/2022.

"Irvine has been debating whether or not to host a cemetery for longer than the United States’ involvement in both World Wars combined, a debate that to date has not led to any tangible results, except frustrated veterans and lawmakers alike."

They chipping in like its free money. (Like its candy)
How about fundraise the money from the private sector and maybe match it? (or maybe straight fundraise) Lease for potential retail stores. (Flower shop, memorabilia store) I dont know if thats a good idea or not. But thinking out of the box is key.

Maybe that money could be appropriated for ANY future veterans cemetery in Orange County. I just see the money allocation for candidates to use in support of their future campaigns.
