Rep. Posthumus talks about House passage Tuesday of his HB 5433, part of a three-bill package that requires state departments to work with the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs to ensure G.I Bill funds can be used for licensing and registration fees within state government. Rep. Posthumus hears veterans often encounter red tape when trying to use G.I. Bill funds for licensing and says the package should provide a smoother path for vets dealing with state government.
Rep. Posthumus talks about legislation that he will introduce in the next few weeks that will provide for professional licensure reciprocity between Michigan and other states. Rep. Posthumus says eliminating some of the red tape involved with transferring credentials will make it easier for professionals to move to Michigan.
