Ohio law on unlicensed marriage officiants

Anyone can have a wedding ceremony without obtaining a marriage license, but you cannot legally marry in the United States without a license. Some people, such as gay couples who are not able to legally marry, hold ceremonies, but U. A wedding is a ceremony typically held to publicly recognize a marriage. You do not need to have a wedding ceremony to be legally married, and you do not have to be legally married to have a wedding ceremony. If you do not obtain a marriage license, you can still have a ceremony, but it will not have any bearing on your legal status as a couple.

In the United States, all states require a marriage license. Requirements such as age, waiting period and blood testing vary from state to state, but if you do not obtain this license prior to your wedding, the marriage will not be legal. Legal wedding ceremonies must use officiants who have the authority under their state to perform ceremonies.

Also allows for municipalities, townships, and counties to establish higher minimum wage requirements. The bill would also criminalize doctors who perform an abortion after this point with a fifth degree felony, with the ability for the State Medical Board to suspend a medical license without a hearing.

This measure is believed to be targeted at environmental protests of pipelines and other energy infrastructure. The bill also prohibits strangulation against a family or household member or dating partner. This week, the Ohio House is scheduled to meet in full session on Wednesday at 1pm. We thought it would be helpful to put this news into context. Instead, the shortfall is with taxpayers who pay estimated taxes each quarter, and likely has to do with uncertainty around the size of April tax bills, resulting from big changes to federal tax law enacted in While state tax collections are above estimate, state spending is actually below initial forecasts.

The DeWine agenda includes a great deal of new spending, so this surplus could help them to make a down payment on campaign promises without the need to sell a tax increase to the Republican-dominated legislature. By March 31, lawmakers must enact a two-year transportation budget, which could include new revenue to address the budget gap. Many are calling for a gas tax increase to make up for some or all of the shortfall.

The DeWine administration was fairly blunt in calling out the prior administration for leaving them a mess. While Ohio law requires the passage of this spending plan for motor fuel taxes and fees by March 31, the process is certain to be more closely watched than usual this year. While no agenda has been made public, we expect committee members will hear from the ODOT Director, and additional hearings will be scheduled to give the public an opportunity to testify. The Senate will announce committee assignments in a press briefing tomorrow morning. You can read our post here. That distinction could make or break citizen initiatives.

Like HJR19, the Koehler proposal would not stop deep-pocketed special interests from hiring all the signature gatherers they need to meet the district requirement. It simply makes it harder for grassroots groups to succeed. Koehler is currently seeking House consponsors with a deadline of Wednesday, February 6. If you are concerned about the outlines of this proposal, consider reaching out to your State Representative today before they add their name as a cosponsor. On the agenda in the Senate , which meets at pm on Wednesday:. The agenda for the House , which also meets on Wednesday at pm, looks similar:.

Hill, who was appointed to the Senate. Once caucus leadership is in place, we will quickly see members and leaders named to the various House and Senate standing committees. House Rep. Kyle Koehler has sent out a cosponsor request to House colleagues advising them that he will be introducing a bill to change the requirements for putting a constitutional amendment on the Ohio ballot.

Koehler indicates his proposal would not change the number of signatures required to access the ballot. The proposal will absolutely make it much harder for grassroots campaigns to succeed. Democratic Rep. Also tomorrow, Representative Janine Boyd will hold a press conference to talk about legislation she is sponsoring to help identify high-risk situations of domestic violence before they lead to more violence. Read more on the proposal from wkyc. Missing among the changes is a hard commitment to broadcast committee hearings online.

If you get our daily clips, you already know that every weekday we send out links to the top policy and politics stories from around Ohio. January is nearly over, but neither the House or Senate has finished the organizational work of electing leadership, organizing into committees and introducing legislation. We are seeing slow but steady movement that suggests things will be up and running by mid-February at the latest.

Nothing is official until the full House reconvenes and holds a floor vote, expected to take place on Wednesday, February 6. The Senate cancelled its only session scheduled for this week, meaning that neither chamber will get to the work of assigning members to committees and introducing bills until at least next week.

The panel is holding a meeting this Wednesday, when it could vote to adopt rules, or determine that more work is needed. Groups and individuals wishing to submit suggested changes to the House rules need to act quickly — amendments must be submitted 24 hours in advance, meaning members need to get them drafted by tomorrow at the latest.

While neither the House or Senate has finalized its list of committees and corresponding membership for the upcoming General Assembly, we are starting to see members named to many of the joint House and Senate committees that serve important oversight roles. Here are some of the appointments made last week:. House Democrats have a leadership vote scheduled Wednesday to finalize their leadership team for the rd General Assembly, replacing members loyal to former Speaker Ryan Smith with those who voted with the majority of the Democratic caucus for returning Speaker Larry Householder.

If you have suggestions for how the House could improve the legislative process to make it more accessible to citizen advocates, we recommend contacting committee members to share your thoughts. It will also include numerous policy changes at those and other departments funded by motor vehicle fees and taxes. By law, the bill must be passed and signed by the Governor by March 31, an extremely short window of time for a proposal of this magnitude.

In , the legislature passed a stopgap measure to borrow against future Turnpike tolls to fund road construction, but that temporary funding has run out. Now, with fuel consumption on the decline, the Department can only pay for the ongoing maintenance of existing infrastructure, but the coffers are dry for any new construction or capacity projects. Does the DeWine administration propose a funding fix — short or long-term — for transportation infrastructure?

Will the GOP-dominated legislature go along with it? Will pedestrian and bike infrastructure and safe routes to school be a priority for the new administration? How will the funding needs of local transit systems be addressed-if at all-by any new funding fix? Will automatic voter registration be in the mix at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles? Among them was the continuation of a last-minute order by Gov.

Kasich to restore anti-discrimination protections for state workers based on gender identity, which DeWine paired with similar protections for workers based on their pregnancy and parenting status. It is a welcome move that we hope will be followed by legislation to ensure all Ohioans are eligible for the same treatment.

The Legislature will be remain for a few more weeks as caucuses hold private retreats to hammer out their legislative priorities and, in the case of the House, elect the rest of the leadership team now that a Speaker has been selected. We expect to see committees starting work around the last week of January in the Senate, and by early February in the House.

One thing that will be interesting to see is how well the new DeWine administration works with the General Assembly. In , Governor Strickland saw the Democratic majority in the House introduce his two-year budget and comprehensive school funding plan as their first bill of the term. We have also seen indications that the General Assembly will take up work on issues around guns, eSchool funding, sports gambling and citizen ballot measures.

Last week, lawmakers worked late into Thursday night to wrap up work on dozens of bills, including several that have been delivered to Governor Kasich for his signature. The Governor has 10 days, not including Sundays, to act sign, veto or allow to become law without a signature on each measure. That gives Gov. The later we go into December, the harder those numbers will be to achieve with lawmakers departing on scheduled vacations.

To take up these potential veto overrides, Senators have sessions scheduled on Wednesday at and on Thursday, December 27, while the House will meet on Thursday and Friday, December 27th and 28th. Some bills have not yet been delivered to the Governor for his signature. Those include:. If Governor Kasich chooses to veto any of these bills still awaiting delivery to his office, it would push the timeline for overrides to Saturday, December 28 or beyond. The Ohio legislature has taken advantage of the Lame Duck session as their opportunity to send two extremist anti-choice bills HB and SB to Gov.

Kasich to veto both of these abortion bans. That said, the Lame Duck threat is not over. This week, both chambers are putting the finishing touches on several bills and look to be preparing to load up a few Christmas trees in the process. It will likely receive a vote by the full Senate this week. The bill could be on the Senate floor for a chamber vote tomorrow. That would start a 10 day not including Sundays clock in which Governor Kasich must act or the bill automatically takes effect. The measure could be taken up by the full House if committee members decide it should advance.

The bill will receive a hearing and vote this afternoon and could be on the House floor on Wednesday. SB86 will be finalized by a conference committee which meets Wednesday. Originally intended to provide funding for shoreline improvements, the bill now appears it will be the vehicle for various spending proposals, as well as a hostile anti-city measure to prohibit Ohio cities from taxing contributions to executive retirement accounts as income.

The bill is opposed by the cities, the Ohio Municipal League and the Ohio Mayors Alliance due to the considerable revenue impact it will have for strained city budgets. The Senate meets twice this week: Wednesday at and Thursday at The House also meets twice: on Wednesday at and Thursday at Last week, the Ohio House followed through on a threat to propose changes to the Ohio Constitution that would make it harder to amend the Ohio Constitution via citizen initiative.

House Joint Resolution 19 HJR19 would change the amendment process by shortening the time during which signatures could be collected to days ending on April 1, and would need to get 60 percent of the vote to pass. The measure would also increase the up-front signature requirement for initiated statutes and add a one-year moratorium on legislative changes to any laws enacted as the result of a citizen initiative. Even without these changes, constitutional amendments are already set to become much harder to enact in Ohio. Thanks to low turnout in the midterms, the signature threshhold for constitutional amendments 10 percent of those who voted for Governor in the last election was just , Thanks to increased turnout in the election, it will now take valid , signatures.

Adding new barriers such as limiting the time to gather signatures to six of the coldest months of the year is unnecessary and will make it all but impossible for grassroots initiative without millions for paid signature-collectors. Voters are already highly discriminating when it comes to passing ballot measures. The vast majority of them fail. Voter education and outreach will become more essential and, as a result, more costly. HRJ19 would also modify the process to change Ohio law via the citizen initiative process by increasing the number of signatures from 3 to 5 percent of the votes for Governor in the prior midterm, while eliminating a requirement to gather additional signatures to get the measure to the ballot if the legislature fails to act.

Currently, just under 92, signatures are required to put a change to Ohio law before the Ohio General Assembly for their consideration and approval. Another 92, are required to put the proposal on the ballot if lawmakers fail to act. Thanks to election turnout, the up front signature requirement will now grow to over , signatures. And if the legislature fails to act within four months, signature-gatherers are required to collect another , signatures to put it before voters.

The changes proposed in HJR19 would increase the up-front number of valid signatures to be submitted to , — over twice what it is today. Ironically, it would need to be approved by a majority 50 percent of voters to take effect. The bill was introduced last Wednesday and was scheduled for a rare same-day hearing. This week, three more hearings are scheduled with the potential for amendments and a committee vote as early as Wednesday.

That would put the proposal on the House floor as soon as Thursday. If passed by the committee, HJR19 could be on the House floor for a vote as early as Thursday at the pm session.

As predicted, the first week of lame duck before the Thanksgiving holiday was busy and consequential. The House and Senate both meet once this week, on Wednesday at The agenda for those committees will be set by the respective Rules and Reference committees which meet at the following times:. The following bills are scheduled for committee votes this week, meaning they are high priorities for passage during lame duck and could be up for passage on the House or Senate floor in the very near future:.

To eliminate gender-based differences in the legal age to marry in Ohio. To prohibit local governments from imposing a fee on single-use plastic bags or other auxiliary containers. While a 2nd hearing is no guarantee that a bill is on track to pass during lame duck, it does represent and opportunity for bill proponents and in some cases opponents — check the committee agenda for details to offer testimony. Eliminates the spousal exceptions for offenses of rape, sexual battery, unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, gross sexual imposition, sexual imposition, and importuning.

It also permits a person to testify against their spouse in a prosecution for any of those offenses. To deny workers compensation benefits to undocumented workers injured on the job. To partially deregulate telephone service in Ohio, allowing for reduced customer service standards, more frequent price increases, and reduced access to low-cost landline service. To require a public vote to enact an increase in local sales taxation.

Subjects public college and university trustees to criminal and civil penalties for restricting the right of any group or individual to speak on campus. To allow debt adjusting firms to operate in Ohio. House members objected that the legislation provides too little consumer protection and allows firms to charge unlimited fees. To Extend Alternate Pathways to Graduation. To denounce and oppose the totalitarian impulses, violent terrorism, xenophobic biases, and bigoted ideologies that are promoted by white nationalists and neo-Nazis. To end the Medicaid expansion. But the process can be difficult to understand.

With the election behind us, the lame duck legislature is here. The six-week session that starts today is already shaping up to be eventful and potentially consequential. However, Republicans may want to help the new Governor avoid expending political capital on controversial measures, potentially setting the stage for passage of more extreme proposals like Stand Your Ground and the Heartbeat abortion ban now rather than waiting until January. In January of every odd-numbered year, newly-elected lawmakers come to Columbus to convene in a new General Assembly. During the two-year session that follows, hundreds of bills are introduced, many of which are signed into law.

Legislators grapple with issues from funding for schools, public safety, social services and transportation to policies that affect community safety, civil rights and protecting public health and the environment. In , the U. However, this overtime pay raise was blocked in Ohio and nationwide as the result of a lawsuit brought by Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.

As a result of the lawsuit, hundreds of thousands of Ohioans lost out on overtime pay rights. Starting with state-level data available from the Economic Policy Institute, the report breaks down the impact, county by county. The report is available online here. It includes county by county breakdowns of how many local workers are impacted. Labor Department updated federal overtime standards for the first time since to restore overtime coverage for more middle class workers. But Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine joined with other states and filed a lawsuit that blocked the overtime expansion.

The Trump Labor Department is now holding listening sessions as it develops a weaker, replacement proposal that will protect fewer workers. Recent studies show Ohio is among the worst states when it comes to the impact of wage theft, or the practice of paying workers for fewer hours than they worked. Ohio uses a complaint-driven model of enforcement in which workers must closely monitor their paycheck to ensure they were paid for all their hours, were not forced to work off the clock or denied mandatory breaks, and were paid the overtime for which they are eligible.

Enforcement agents respond to their complaints to assess their merits and assess a judgement. Workers who are unaware of their rights or afraid to challenge their employers are unlikely to make a claim, meaning the state is only looking at a fraction of the overall wage theft that takes place. One reason cited by experts for the high rate of wage theft is that, in the past decade, the Wage and Hour Enforcement unit at the Department of Commerce — responsible for enforcement of wage and hour laws — has been gutted; its already-meager staff was reduced from 12 to just 6.

The results are about as poor as you might expect. According to a Cleveland Plain Dealer investigation, just 31 percent of workers who file complaints with the state see them approved by the department. And, even among those lucky enough to have their claims approved, only half of those recover the back pay they were denied. Responsibility for collection is shared by the Department of Commerce and the Office of the Attorney General.

In , a similar review by Policy Matters Ohio found the state resolved cases in favor of workers nearly 65 percent of the time. Since then, the enforcement workforce has been cut in half. Another factor is a change in policy to waive penalties for employers the first time they violate the law. Researchers at Northwestern University found the number of wage theft cases in Ohio rose almost immediately after that change, signaling that penalties are an effective deterrent. Lawmakers have not helped. While they have consistently refused to add funding, improve oversight, or extend overtime and minimum wage protections to more workers, in , the Ohio House voted to adopt a measure HB that would exempt certain franchise workers from existing wage and hour protections.

The next Governor can play a big role in ensuring workers get to take home more of what they earn in their paychecks by giving the office of wage and hour enforcement a higher profile, bigger budget and more authority. Addressing wage theft is just one way to better make work pay for working Ohioans. As a state legislator since , Republican Troy Balderson has cast a number of significant votes. Here is a look at some of the most important positions he has taken throughout his 10 year legislative career:. On August 7, voters in seven Ohio counties will choose between two candidates with very different approaches to how and whether government can act to reduce gun violence.

I do not believe that banning or regulating guns from law-abiding citizens will do anything to end gun violence. We must address mental health and devote resources to identify and treat individuals with mental health problems. While I am supportive of arming teachers, that decision should be left up to individual school districts — not decided as blanket federal policy for the entire nation. I support banning bump stocks, implement universal background checks, and an assault weapons ban.

I have been given the recommendation of Moms Demand Action in this campaign. If someone who commits domestic violence wants a gun, they should be denied. As a state lawmaker, Balderson has taken some key votes on gun legislation in the Ohio Senate. Guns in Bars — In , Balderson voted for Senate Bill 17, making Ohio one of the handful of states that allow concealed firearms to be carried into places where liquor is served, including bars, sports arenas and nightclubs.

Guns in bars bill passes Ohio House, Senate concurs, Gov.


John Kasich to sign it. Guns in Daycares, College Campuses — In , Balderson voted for Senate Bill , which opened up daycares and college campuses to the carrying of concealed weapons. John Kasich signs bill to allow concealed carry at colleges, daycares, plus 16 other bills. On August 7, voters in seven Ohio counties will choose between two candidates with very different approaches to healthcare issues. As a State Senator, Balderson voted to freeze Medicaid expansion during state budget negotiations.

The plan would prohibit new enrollment in the program and block re-enrollment as current enrollees cycle off due to income and employment fluctuations and was estimated could result in a loss of coverage for , Ohioans. The measure was vetoed by Governor Kasich. The next Governor will inherit an enormous opportunity to enact policies that can have a profound impact on how the people and economy of our state adapt for the future.

While there is no evidence that any member of clergy has ever been forced to perform a wedding against their will—both the Ohio and US Constitution already grant this type of religious freedom—the sponsor says the bill is necessary to avoid the hypothetical possibility of lawsuits.

Both the House and Senate will hold their final scheduled voting sessions Wednesday before members take the next four months off to campaign before the November election. That makes it do-or-die time for legislation, so Statehouse watchers know to be vigilant for some last minute surprises. This morning, the House will set its schedule for Wednesday votes and the Senate follows suit Wednesday.

For now, we can make some educated guesses about what will happen in this final week. The bill states that clergy cannot be forced to perform marriage ceremonies contrary to their religious believes, and was shelved in after a loud public outcry over its necessity. No witnesses could identify a case in which any church office was forced to solemnize a marriage.

It is up for a vote in a House committee after just two hearings. The measure could be an attractive vehicle for education-related amendments, such as changes to how the State regulates eSchools, especially now that a standalone bill HB was pulled from the schedule.

Representatives are set to return on Thursday to vote on the backlog of bills that are awaiting action in the chamber. As we noted last week , it means important legislation—payday lending reform, campus sexual assault policies, textbook taxes and more—can finally move.
