Larry Neilson of St. Paul would like his sister to perform the marriage of his daughter. A new law will allow her to do so.

His sister is an administrative judge. While most judges are able to perform the duty, administrative judges were not, under previous law.

That will change effective Aug. 1, 2012.

Rep. Bev Scalze (DFL-Little Canada) and Sen. John Marty (DFL-Roseville) sponsor the law.
