Some spouses of military members will have an easier time finding a job when they move to Missouri.
Gov. Mike Parson on Tuesday signed legislation to have Missouri honor the professional licenses that military spouses hold from other states.
Parson said the move will help military spouses avoid hiccups in their careers when they relocate to Missouri, and will also help fill open jobs.
Parson and some lawmakers have expressed interest in expanding the program to non-military families to help make the state more attractive.
