Higher Education and Employment Advancement Committee

AN ACT INCLUDING THE HIGHER EDUCATION COMMITTEE IN THE RECEIPT OF ANNUAL REPORTS RELATING TO MILITARY VETERANS AND LICENSURE

SUMMARY: This act adds the Higher Education and Employment Advancement Committee to the list of required recipients of certain annual reports about service members who receive credit for military training or experience. Existing law requires licensing authorities, the Board of Regents for Higher Education (BOR), and UConn's Board of Trustees to submit annual reports on this issue to the Veterans' Affairs Committee and the Department of Labor.

By law, licensing authorities' reports must address matters such as (1) the number of service members who applied for a military training evaluation, license, certificate, registration, or educational credit within the licensing authority's purview and where military training or experience is relevant and could be applied; (2) the number of applications that were approved and denied; and (3) the processing time for such applications. BOR and UConn's Board of Trustees must report on the same information as the licensing authorities, except these reports (1) need not include information on denied applications or processing times and (2) must include additional information on the types of military training (including the types not awarded credit) and the types of educational credit awarded.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2018
