Texas bill would introduce expedited licensure application process for veterans and military spouses

23 Nov 2012 1:07 PM | Anonymous
Texas House Bill 45, pre-filed for the 2013 legislative session by State Representative Dan Flynn, would require the state to expedite licensure applications from service members and veterans, who have been licensed by the military on the basis of training similar to that required of civilians. The expedited provision would also relate to military spouses. The license would last a year, and renewal would then follow regular state requirements to practice. Commenting on the bill, State Representative Flynn said "our returning veterans make up one of the largest unemployment pools in the United States. The current procedure for returning vets is to retake yearlong training courses for occupations they have already been licensed for by the military, this seems like a waste of time when they could be back into the workforce using the skills they developed during their service with little to no downtime upon return from active duty."
