Governor Mike Parson Monday signed House Bill 2046 which expands licensing reciprocity in the state. The signing is in follow up to April’s signing of legislation introduced by 122nd District State Representative Steve Lynch of Waynesville that makes it easier for military spouses to transfer their professional licenses from other states.

In signing House Bill 2046, the governor said, “By expanding license reciprocity…(it) will eliminate governmental barriers to employment and allow citizens to become licensed faster when moving or needing to find work in Missouri.”
