CONCORD, N.H. — More than six months after President Obama signed into a law a measure from New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte to restore a cemetery for U.S. veterans in the Philippines, Ayotte wants to know why the work hasnít started yet.

The Clark Veterans Cemetery was neglected following a volcanic eruption in 1991 and abandonment of a U.S. Air Force base. The cemetery was left covered in ash and overgrown by weeds. It is the final resting place for more than 8,300 American service members and their families.

Ayotte has written to Secretary of State John Kerry. Sheís expressed concerns that the State Department hasnít finalized an agreement with the Filipino government to allow the restoration work. She asks that the agreement be completed.
