State Rep. David Martin is spearheading a plan to remove roadblocks for veterans entering the workforce after their military service ends.
Martin, a U.S. Air Force veteran from Davison, introduced legislation today that will waive occupational licensing fees for veterans and their dependents for five years after their military or uniformed service ends.
“My goal is to help the men and women who put everything on the line to serve our country transition back to civilian life,” said Martin, who also serves as vice chair of the House Workforce, Trades and Talent Committee. “This change will help welcome our hometown heroes back with open arms and create a more hospitable environment for military families who want to call Michigan home.”
Michigan law currently waives licensing fees for active-duty members of the armed forces or uniformed services, as well as dependents of active members. House Bill 6400 simply extends the courtesy to veterans for the first five years after their service ends.
The plan has been referred to the House Workforce, Trades and Talent Committee for consideration.
