    Default New law will ease steps for veterans to receive truckersí licenses

    Very cool!
    In a visit to the Dayton headquarters of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local Union 957, Brown, an original co-sponsor of the Military Commercial Driverís License Act of 2012, said the legislation will ease the transition from military to civilian life for some service members by allowing them to get commercial driverís licenses, or CDLs, where they are stationed.

    Current law requires people to get CDLs in their home states, and licenses obtained in other states are non-transferable. But Brown said that requirement is a burden on veterans who receive relevant training on military bases in other states. He said the new law will remove this obstacle to veterans gaining employment in the freight industry.

    Teamsters Applaud Signing of Military Commercial Drivers' License Act

    (WASHINGTON) – Teamsters across the country are applauding President Barack Obama’s signing into law today of the Military Commercial Driver’s License Act of 2012. The demand for qualified, safe truck drivers has risen over the past few years and the new law will make it easier for veterans and service men and women to obtain Commercial Drivers Licenses (CDL), making them more employable once they leave active-duty.
