It doesn't seem that OK would need an additional law prohibiting "outside" laws if they carefully follow the laws that they already have in place.
Good question about the plural marriages. I don't know why they allow them. I think some places are finally cracking down on the so-called marriages of young girls to dirty old men. Prosecution is often difficult in those cases because all the parties involved are so closed off from the outside. It's hard to get witnesses to testify.
Nailing Warren Jeffs was a good start.
How often is plural marriages in the U.S. being cracked down on?
