Numerous Military Family Quality of Life Bills Pass
in 2021 Legislative Session
Lieutenant Governor Will Ainsworth, who is the Chairman of the Alabama Military Stability Commission, and the Alabama Legislature understand that Military Quality of Life issues are very important for military families living in and moving to Alabama, and that they impact each defense community across the State. As such, the Lieutenant Governor laid out a robust agenda for the 2021 Legislative Session in support of Alabama’s military-connected residents and military spouses moving to Alabama who require licensure reciprocity to continue their careers in the State. The result of Alabama’s focus on military quality of life, especially reducing the professional career barriers faced by many military spouses, will have positive impacts on both mental and financial concerns for military spouses and their Service Members.
These bills included Alabama’s entry into three (3) additional licensure compacts, allowing for increased career portability for military spouses moving to Alabama.
- All three compacts are effective June 1, 2021.
