Current Bill Summary

SB 672 - This act requires higher education institutions to accept credits for courses that military personnel passed as part of their military training if the courses meet certain standards for academic credit. Members of the armed forces with health-related professional licenses or certificates that are in good standing when entering active duty shall have their licenses or certificates stay in good standing while on active duty. Renewal of these licenses or certificates while the member is on active duty shall occur without requiring payment of dues. Continuing education will also not be required if certain requirements are met. Service as a member of the armed forces, if satisfactory to the licensing board, may be applied towards qualifications to receive a license or certificate from a professional licensing board.

This act is similar to HB 1297 (2012) and HB 1579 (2012).
