Military spouses who are licensed health care professionals can start work sooner after being transferred to Florida under a bill signed Tuesday by Gov. Rick Scott (R).
House Bill 1319 allows military spouses to receive a temporary state license in their health care profession while they wait for a permanent one. Previously spouses needed to obtain a new professional license before working in their field. Scott signed a handful of other bills benefiting service members and veterans as well, including one lowering property taxes for deployed personnel, reported TBNWeekly.com.
“Florida continues to be one of the most military friendly states in the nation, and the legislation I am signing today continues that proud tradition,” the governor said.
