18 wheeler CDL

After securing unanimous support in the Mississippi House and Senate, Gov. Tate Reeves signed House Bill 1486 on Tuesday. The bill revises Mississippi’s commercial driver’s license qualification standards that require the Commission of Public Safety to implement test waivers for currently serving military members and military veterans who have established training and experience operating heavy military vehicles.

“This legislation offers streamlined job opportunities to our soldiers and airmen serving in the Mississippi National Guard,” said Maj. Gen. Janson D. Boyles, the adjutant general of Mississippi National Guard. “It allows our service members to use their military training and experience to advance their civilian career. This is a great news story for our service members and our military families.”
