2019 MA Legislation

Four bills are pending before the Massachusetts General Court of the Commonwealth that are important to JPs. If you want changes to the One-Day rule, or would like an increase in the fees you may charge to couples, your state Representatives and Senators need to hear from you!

SD2216: establishes a commission study to evaluate the One-Day rule
  • SD 941 increases application fees for 1-Dayers (Gobi)
  • SD 943 broadens JP’s advertising to include in “any public media” (Gobi)
  • SD 659 increases the fees that JPs may charge to $120 in-town, and $180 for out-of-town ceremonies (DiDomenico).

Read more about these bills and learn more about what you can do to make them become law.
