Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed legislation Wednesday that removes barriers to help veterans and their families continue their careers in Michigan, accelerating the state's economic recovery.
"I am proud to sign these bipartisan bills to clear the path for our military service members, veterans, and their dependents to enter a licensed profession," Whitmer said. "This legislation will help us attract and retain talent in Michigan and boosts our broader effort to put Michigan back to work."
Specifically, the legislation:
"As a veteran, the wife of a veteran and as a mother to a military spouse, I understand firsthand many of the struggles veterans and military members face when they return home and seek employment, said Zaneta Adams, director of the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency. "This is a huge step in the right direction of making Michigan more veteran friendly. I am proud to be a part of a mission to make our state a great place for veterans and their families, to live, work and call home."
