Maryland Gov. to Sign Veterans Full Employment Act of 2013 Tomorrow with Michelle Obama Present

We have written about the first lady's support for the troops before and tomorrow she'll be at it again, attending a bill signing at the Maryland State House.

Michelle Obama will witness Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley's signing of the Veterans Full Employment Act of 2013.

According to the Washington Post, this legislation "will enable veterans who apply for occupational and professional licenses in Maryland to get credit for their military training, education and experience."

The Post reports that bill will do two things - 1) Require public colleges and universities to develop policies that award academic credit for relevant military training and education and 2) Create expedited licensing procedures in the state of Maryland for veterans and military spouses who hold professional licenses in other states.

We're looking forward to seeing this bill become law tomorrow!
