Dennis Daugaard on Homeland Security

 

  
 


Transfer professional license from other states for military

On my trip to Afghanistan and Kuwait, seeing our troops overseas is a reminder of the sacrifices they make to protect us all. There are other servicemen and women serving much closer to home--here in South Dakota. Many of them are stationed at Ellsworth Air Force Base. My last proposal today is for these families. 35% of military spouses in the workforce are in professions that require professional licensure or certification. When a military family is transferred to our state, that family should not lose earning power for an extended period while a spouse seeks licensure in South Dakota.

I will be proposing a professional licensure portability bill for military spouses. This bill will streamline the process so that a military spouse with a license or certificate in another state can easily transfer into South Dakota. Nearly half of our sister states have approved similar legislation, and I hope you will vote to have South Dakota join those states.

Support our troops because they protect our freedoms

Today's foreign struggles are creating a new generation of heroes, who have put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms. We owe them our thanks and our strong support.

Split two departments: Military & Veterans' Affairs

I will be splitting the current Department of Military and Veterans' Affairs into two cabinet-level departments. The Department of the Military will oversee the National Guard. The Department of Veterans Affairs will oversee our Veterans benefits and programs.

Creating separate Departments for the Military and for Veterans Affairs will allow focusing on leading an increasingly active National Guard, while allowing Veterans Affairs to ensure that we always meet our obligations to our veterans.
