A bill that will streamline the process for veterans seeking a Commercial Driver's License has passed the house and is awaiting the president's signature. The bill, co-sponsored by Kansas Senator Jerry Moran would no longer require veterans and military personnel to obtain the CDL in their home state of origin.
Many members of the armed forces learn how to operate commercial vehicles while serving at bases away from their home state. However, the law governing the issuing of CDL's requires anyone wishing to obtain a commercial driver's license to do so in their home state of origin.
The current bill would allow military personnel and veterans to get their commercial driver's license in the state they reside in. It is awaiting President Obama's signature.
