Gov. Susana Martinez is exactly right to say that the state should make it less complicated for military families and veterans to get to work immediately when they move to New Mexico.
That’s why the state Legislature was correct in passing a law to expedite the occupational license process for nurses, teachers, counselors, barbers and other jobs that require licensing. Now, people don’t have to start the licensing process from scratch just because they have moved to New Mexico. Without delays, it should be easier for veterans and family members to get right to work.
