If you move to Mississippi, the state doesn’t automatically recognize your occupational license from another state- whether that’s a teacher, a hairdresser, or one of dozens of other professions we license.

This is the story of Dana Presley. This is the story of Wendy Swart.

If you’ve learned the skill in another state and have practiced without any infractions, you should be able to work in Mississippi.

We need more people working. Not less.

This reform will be a top priority for MCPP in 2021.

Can we count on your support and engagement as we build the case for occupational licensing reform next year?
