|Subject:||Eliminate waiting period for marriage license - Prior HB1302|
|In the near future, I will introduce legislation to eliminate the waiting period for a marriage license in Pennsylvania.
Over twenty states, including Alabama, Connecticut, Colorado, Georgia, Montana, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Utah, have no waiting period for a marriage license.
Pennsylvania currently has a three-day waiting period. This time period made sense when the parties had to undergo a blood test for syphilis. That test is no longer required under Pennsylvania law.
I hope you will join me in supporting this legislation.
Introduced as HB141
