MRAAB1, Uthman bin-Fahd’s bill to legalize prostitution in the MRA has passed the MRA Assembly and has been signed by Governor Adams into law.
The Assembly voted along bipartisan lines, 5-1, to approve the bill. Zaynab B. Jackson (True Whig) who was the only Assemblyman to vote against the bill, remarked that while she did not oppose the bill in concept, she had certain reservations regarding the registration requirements, thus prompting her vote.
Bin-Fahd, speaking afterwards, was pleased with the outcome:
Removing shame and reducing victim-less crime are positive things. Now, woo-hoo workers in the MRA no longer have to hide in the shadows.
Although now legal, sources tell the Journal-Intelligencer that no permits have been applied for to open the first brothel in town.
