|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.
