17 Feb: Scutari Bill To Modernize NJ Marriage License Requirements Clears Committee

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Nicholas P. Scutari 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 yesterday by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“With beautiful and scenic locations throughout the state, New Jersey has great potential to be a wedding destination for couples throughout the US, but our current laws are cumbersome and restrict where, when and who can be married,” said Senator Scutari, D-Union. “By modernizing this process, we will open up New Jersey’s wedding market to out-of-state consumers, spurring economic growth for many small businesses and boosting our local economies.”
