Marriage license hike proposed

May 7, 2013

PROVIDENCE – The cost of getting married in Rhode Island could triple soon.
Pawtucket Rep. Elaine Coderre has introduced legislation that would add a $46 surcharge to the fee for a marriage license to pay for domestic violence prevention.
That would hike the cost of a license – which is currently $24 – to $70.
Of the additional $46, $44 would go to the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence (RICADV) to operate the prevention programs and $2 would be kept by the city or town issuing the license.
