By: Sarah Ulmer - March 11, 2021
The Mississippi Legislature has passed occupational licensing reform aimed at providing for recognition of out-of-state licenses, helping get people to work faster when they move into the state. The bill, HB 1263, was authored by Rep. Currie. It is now headed back to the House for further work.
