The Effects of Occupational Licensure for Veterans and Military Spouses
The Pennsylvania Department of State conducted a year-long study on the effects of occupational licensure for veterans and military spouses. As part of the study, the Department surveyed over 200 veterans and military spouses, seeking their feedback on topics such as license portability, barriers to licensure, and the overall license application process. Findings from this research led to the development of policy recommendations targeted at creating more employment opportunities for this population while simultaneously increasing the number of qualified professionals practicing in Pennsylvania.
