New Rules Help Veterans Get Jobs in Massachusetts


Lt. Gov. Tim Murray speaks at a gathering in Springfield in June 2012.
BOSTON — The Republican –  Massachusetts is adopting new guidelines designed to make it easier for veterans to get jobs.
Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray says the state’s 31 professional licensing boards have been instructed to begin accepting any comparable education and training applicants may have received in the military as qualifications toward a license.
The new regulations would also keep valid any professional licenses held by members of the military for at least three months after they leave active duty.
The Registry of Motor Vehicles said Monday it was adopting a waiver that allows veterans and active service members to apply for a commercial driver’s license without taking a road skills test if they have at least two years of experience with similar military vehicles. Massachusetts joins 36 other states that previously adopted the waiver.
