(The Center Square) - Colorado Gov. Jared Polis signed bipartisan legislation into law that reforms existing occupational licensing laws to further accommodate the transfer of certifications and licensure for professionals moving from other states.

Polis signed House Bill 20-1326 on Thursday that creates an occupational credential portability program, which streamlines access to temporary licenses for professions that maintain licenses in other states, and eases licensure for the spouses of newly located active duty and reserve military personnel.
