"Military spouses serve alongside our nation's servicemen and women. States should act to remove excessive regulatory barriers to work, so that our military spouses can help support their families," said U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta. "This new site highlights states’ efforts to help military spouses secure good, family-sustaining jobs."
Military spouses can search directly on the portal for guidelines and state laws on professional licensing, including information on how occupational licenses from one state can be recognized in another. The page features a map that shows which states offer temporary licensing, expedited licensing, or licensure by endorsement for relocating spouses.
