AN ACT to amend the domestic relations law and  the  executive  law,  in
  relation to allowing marriages within twenty-four hours of receiving a
  marriage license

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Section 13-b of the domestic relations law, as  amended  by
chapter 652 of the laws of 2007, is amended to read as follows:
  S 13-b. Time within which marriage may be solemnized. [A] 1. EXCEPT AS
PROVIDED  IN  SUBDIVISION  TWO  OF THIS SECTION, A marriage shall not be
solemnized within twenty-four hours after the issuance of  the  marriage
license,  unless  authorized by an order of a court of record as herein-
after provided, nor shall it be solemnized after  sixty  days  from  the
date  of the issuance of the marriage license unless authorized pursuant
to section three hundred fifty-four-d  of  the  executive  law.    Every
license  to  marry hereafter issued by a town or city clerk, in addition
to other requirements specified by this chapter, must contain  a  state-
ment of the day and the hour the license is issued and the period during
which  the marriage may be solemnized. It shall be the duty of the cler-
gyman or magistrate performing the marriage ceremony, or if the marriage
is solemnized by written contract, of the judge before whom the contract
is acknowledged, to annex to or endorse upon the  marriage  license  the
date  and  hour  the  marriage  is solemnized. A judge or justice of the
supreme court of this state or the county judge of the county  in  which
either  party  to  be married resides, or if such party is under sixteen
years of age, the judge of the family court of such county, if it  shall
appear from an examination of the license and any other proofs submitted
by  the  parties that one of the parties is in danger of imminent death,
or by reason of other emergency public interest will be promoted  there-

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
