COLUMBUS— State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) announced the Ohio House passage of Senate Bill 7 last week. SB 7 requires state occupational licensing agencies to issue temporary licenses to military members and their spouses if they are already licensed elsewhere and have moved to Ohio on active duty.

“This will help our active military members when they are required to move,” said Rep. Romanchuk. “We owe our military members everything, and this bill will help solve an issue some of them are having.”

The bill would require members and spouses to hold a valid license and be in good standing. They must also show proof that they or their spouses are members of the military and on active duty in Ohio.

The bill now goes to the Ohio Senate for a concurring vote.
