LEGISLATION TO SPEED UP WEDDING PROCESS ADVANCES

The Assembly has signed off on legislation allowing for a quickie wedding. The measure eliminates the current 72-hour waiting period and streamlining residency requirements. Lawmakers believe that this will boost the wedding industry in the state, because other states in the area have a waiting period for the issuance of a marriage or civil union license after an application is made. The bill now awaits action in the Senate.
