Legislation by Del. Mark Levine (D-Alexandria-Arlington), whose thrust is to remove a statewide prohibition on consensual fornication among unmarried persons, is moving forward in Richmond.

The House Committee on Courts of Justice approved the measure on an 18-0 vote and sent it to the House floor.

(Oddly enough, the section of the Code of Virginia that deals with this matter also sets out regulations of breweries, a series of rules that would be unaffected by the changes in Levine’s bill.)
