Raleigh, NC – This week the North Carolina General Assembly introduced a bill which would ease occupational licensing burdens on military families. If passed, the measure would allow military members and their spouses to practice their professions under licensure from another state while transitioning to the requirements of the licensing boards of North Carolina.
Concerned Veterans for America supports the bill and urges local policy makers to advance the reform on behalf of the men and women who have served this country.
Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) North Carolina Coalitions Director John Byrnes issued the following statement:
“Military members and their spouses should not be subject to unnecessary regulations as they move between states during active duty and transition back into civilian life after hanging up the uniform. We applaud the General Assembly for introducing this important bill, which would ease burdens on the North Carolina military community. The government should make it as easy as possible for our nation’s heroes to use their skills to seek economic security for their families.“
