TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Nicholas P. Scutari (D-Union) to modernize the state’s marriage license requirements, which would give New Jersey’s tourism and hospitality industry a competitive advantage over states across the region and the country, was approved today by the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee.
“New Jersey’s coastal location makes it among the most sought after destinations in the country for weddings. Paired with our premier wedding venues and small businesses offering wedding-related services, our state offers couples a first-class experience,” said Senator Scutari. “By modernizing the process of filing for a license, we will make our state even more attractive to out-of-state consumers. Ultimately, this will help to create jobs and to boost our local economies.”
