Gov. signs bill aimed at making it easier for military spouses to find jobs
Governor Markell Monday signed a bill designed to help military spouses get jobs.
House Bill 238, written by Dover Democrat Darryl Scott, allows military spouses moving to new towns to apply for six-month provisional licenses while an application for endorsement or reciprocity is being processed.
The applicant has to have an active license in another state or US Territory with no unresolved complaints to qualify for the provisional license.
The new law also allows military spouses who hold professional licenses to re-instate them within 2 years of the license lapsing, provided the license wasn't revoked or suspended.
