RE: HB 6407 An Act Concerning the Occupational and Professional Licenses of Military Members’ Spouses

Dear Committee members:
 
I am writing today on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut in support of HB 6407 An Act Concerning the Occupational and Professional Licenses of Military Members’ Spouses. Connecticut. Connecticut is home to thousands of military families, and regularly welcomes new families who deserve our utmost support in their transition. Supporting military spouses’ employment opportunities in our state contributes to their financial, professional, and personal wellbeing.
 
It is important that Connecticut join other states in establishing broad professional licensure and certification recognition for military spouses. As these families dedicate themselves in service to our country, easing their transfer in a change of station should be prioritized and every effort made to mitigate adverse impacts to military spouses’ career and access to work in their professional area.
 
On behalf of the Chamber, I write in strong support of 6407 An Act Concerning the Occupational and Professional Licenses of Military Members’ Spouses.
 
Sincerely,

 
Tony Sheridan
President and CEO, Chamber of Commerce of Eastern Connecticut
