JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A new law signed by Gov. Tate Reeves will allow people who move to Mississippi from out-of-state to maintain their professional licenses.
House Bill 1263 requires licensing boards to issue occupational licenses for professions without new testing or classroom training if a person held a license in good standing from another state for at least one year.
The new rule will take effect on July 1.
Professions covered under this legislation include nursing and architecture.
Licensing boards will also be required to issue licenses if a person has worked at least three years in a state that did not require a license for their occupation.
