SB 5359 - DIGEST

Requires the regulating authorities for the department of licensing and the department of health to file reports to the legislature biennially and to the state military transition council annually beginning January 1, 2018, and appear annually before the joint committee on veterans' and military affairs to provide updates on the implementation of laws to streamline the licensing processes for military service members and their spouses.

Requires the department of labor and industries and the professional educator standards board to each submit a report to the legislature, including an assessment on how its licensing, certification, and apprenticeship programs apply training and experience acquired by military members and their spouses outside of the state, and recommendations about whether the programs should be included in the reporting schedule.
