Assembly Democrats News Release

Tucker, Singleton, Eustace, Lampitt, Greenwald & Wisniewski Bill Granting Access to Temporary Professional Licensure for Nonresident Military Spouses Approved by Assembly

Bill Would Help Professional Licensed Spouses Return to Work Sooner After Relocation

(TRENTON) - The Assembly on Monday approved legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Cleopatra Tucker, Troy Singleton, Timothy Eustace, Pamela Lampitt, Lou Greenwald and John Wisniewski that would allow nonresident military spouses to seek temporary licensure from certain professional and occupations licensing boards upon moving to New Jersey.

The bill (A-3427) would provide a "nonresident military spouse" an opportunity to seek a one-year temporary licensure with option to apply for an extension at the end of the year. Under the bill, a "nonresident military spouse" is defined as a spouse of an active duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces who has been transferred to the state or has moved to the state on a permanent change-of-station basis. Nine states have passed and signed into law similar legislation.

"This is an opportunity for the state to help military families bridge the employment gap when transferred and see little disruption in earning an income for their family," said Tucker (D-Essex). "In a year or two-year time, if the individual has permanently relocated to New Jersey, this temporary license will give them time to seek permanent licensure while continuing to make a living."

"Fliers extolling the virtues of freeholder candidate Gerard Balmir, Jr. of Jersey City were found inside bags of meals-on-wheels deliveries. Someone must have thought it’s time for the recipients to stop watching TV with their meals and do some constructive reading." - Political Insider columnist Agustin Torres
