Military Commercial Driver's License Act

Statement

This week, I joined U.S. Senators Olympia J. Snowe (R-Maine), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) in introducing the Military Commercial Driver's License Act, which would streamline the process by which service members obtain Commercial Driver's Licenses (CDLs). Our bill would eliminate a current-law hurdle that only allows members of the military to obtain a license in their home state of record. Since many military personnel retain home states of record that differ from where they are actually stationed, it is difficult for them to apply training received at their military installation to getting CDL, a problem alleviated by this bill. Members of the military who have either entered civilian life or are currently stationed at McConnell Air Force Base, Fort Riley, Fort Leavenworth and Forbes Field will benefit from this legislation.
