California IN BRIEF : SIMI VALLEY : Reagans Given OK for Library Burial
The Ventura County Board of Supervisors decided Tuesday that former President Ronald Reagan and his wife, Nancy, can be buried at his presidential library near Simi Valley. The supervisors unanimously approved the Reagans’ burial request despite claims by an environmental group that the two-plot cemetery will result in more visitors to the library and more pollution to the county’s air. The burial site will be on the grounds of the $60-million library complex in the hills above Simi Valley, which includes a museum highlighting aspects of Reagan’s life and a 55-million page collection of presidential documents generated during Reagan’s years in the White House. It is scheduled to open Nov. 4.
