The Platte Institute provided testimony in support of LB263. Universal Recognition of job licensing removes obstacles for workers and entrepreneurs in licensed professions who want to come from other states and work in Nebraska. Under this straightforward bill, people would be eligible to receive a Nebraska license if they were licensed for at least one year in their previous state and remained in good standing. People with at least three years of work experience in a state or branch of military service that does not have a licensing requirement would also be eligible for Nebraska licensure. Both groups would have to pay their Nebraska licensing fees or take a state licensing exam, if necessary. Click here to read Frequently Asked Questions about LB263.
