Legislation Briefs



Law cases


1/2003

Phyllis Kahn

Phyllis Kahn introduced a bill that would repeal marriage restrictions for first cousins in the state of Minnesota. This bill is currently in the civil law committee. We need everyone to call, write letters and e-mail the committee members in support of the bill. Historically such bills die in committee, however I am very hopeful. Check back for updated information.

Three MD delegates

Three delegates from Maryland introduced a bill to BAN first cousin marriage. The bill died in committee. One delegate stated they received e-mail from "all over the world" opposing the bill. Thanks cousincouples.com!! We can make a difference when we work together. The delegates were KUMAR P. BARVE, JOSEPH F. VALLARIO, JR, and HENRY B. HELLER. They stated they would reintroduce the bill, however have not at this time. I don't expect them to reintroduce the bill again.
