Start up by recognizing our pages for the day. Isaiah Davis from Dodge Peru. Hey Isaiah, welcome to the commitee and Luke Heavens from Aspra welcome his Hazier sponsor is senator Don Davis and weeks sponsor, senator Jerry Tillman [xx] That's right. Our Sergeant at arms for the day is Harry Hancock and Jim Hamiltone thank you guys for serving us here. We have one bill before the committee it's in bill 545 where enrichment [xx], it's going to be represented by Senate Ron Rebon[sp?] It's all your Thank you Mr. Chairman chairman. Thank you everybody for being here. These bill takes another step towards the military friendliness in workforce development, in workforce enrichment. As you recalled last year we passed a bill that made it a better process for taking veterans in to the system and getting license to practice what they had learnt previously with less bubbles in the session. This bill expands on that a little bit and what it says is, that if a person can go in a veteran comes in with a DD214 team which is a proper certification for training and experience in the military, shows it to the board and the board gives a competency test and a fair competency test is written into the law. The same test as they would give anyone else, if the give one, then the person gets the license and practice what they're experienced and trained in without further ado or without further going to school and all of that, I ask for your support if that demonstrates our military friendliness this in the state in our commitment to getting our workforce aligned and enriched so that other force would want to move in and do cameras in the state, thank you very much.
