Here is a current update on Ohio bills that we have been supporting: H. B. No. 16 - Grant state college residency status to active duty military and dependents. This was introduced by Representative Perales and has passed both the house and the senate. I talked to Representative Perales' office and they are very hopeful that this bill will be signed by the governor in the next couple of weeks. S. B. No. 7 - Regards temporary occupational licensing for military - Sponsors: Sen. Lehner; Sen. Hackett. This bill has passed the senate and is currently with house Armed Services and Veterans Affairs committee undergoing amendments. This bill will hopefully be passed in the next couple of weeks also. For both of these bills there was not a lot of opposition. MOAA sent in letters of support at various stages but they are both popular and we are hopeful they will be passed.
