Ladies and gentlemen, your republican controlled Missouri General Assembly:
Changes the laws regarding marriage and replaces marriage licenses with contracts of domestic union
Sponsor: Berry, T.J. (038)
Proposed Effective Date: 8/28/2017
LR Number: 0126H.01I
Last Action: 12/01/2016 – Prefiled (H)
Bill String: HB 62
Next Hearing: Hearing not scheduled
Calendar: Bill currently not on a House calendar
As near as we can tell the bill replaces every reference to marriage in Missouri statutes with “a party to a contract of domestic union”.
It’s going to be a very, very long legislative session.
