PROFESSIONAL LICENSE RECIPROCITY FOR MILITARY AND SPOUSES

PROFESSIONAL LICENSE RECIPROCITY FOR MILITARY AND SPOUSES

 As Passed by the Mississippi Legislative (2013 Regular Session) and signed into law by the Governor: Senate Bill 2419 provides that Military and Military Spouses who are moving or have moved to Mississippi due to active duty transfer may more quickly obtain licenses for many professions such as teaching, accounting, cosmetology, engineering, and real estate brokerage.  Licenses for physicians, nurses, dentists, dietists, dieticians, and other medical jobs are also included. The bill also provides that individuals with military training may (subject to guidelines set by licensing boards) count their experience toward requirements for various job licenses, certificates, and registrations. State licensing boards can grant either a permanent or temporary occupational license.  People with temporary licenses can start working while applying for permanent ones.
