Senate Bill 2117, sponsored by Sen. Chuck Younger, and House Bill 1510, sponsored by Rep. Steve Hopkins, would require the state to recognize an occupational license from another state for military families.

These bills would require occupational licensing boards to issue licenses to military spouses who have obtained a similar license in another state. This would make it easier for military families to work when they move to Mississippi. 

MCPP has reviewed this legislation and finds that it is aligned with our principles and therefore should be supported. 

Read SB 2117 and HB 1510.
