— You can get a recruit’s license in Kentucky and recruiters who work in the state can do so without having to get their own license.
The new law that took effect on Wednesday allows recruits to do work for Kentucky recruiters and their organizations, a major shift in recruiting laws across the country.
The move comes as recruiting has become a hot-button issue nationally.
The FBI is investigating possible links between Russia and the 2016 election.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote Wednesday on a bill to extend the federal hiring freeze, which expires in March.
Indiana has been among the states that have had an influx of new recruits from other states since Donald Trump won the presidency.
The state’s recruits now number more than 30,000 and are among the top recruits in the country, according to recruiting website Rivals.
The University of Kentucky and the University of Tennessee both recently added recruits.
“Indiana’s recruiting industry has been one of the most successful in the nation and the recruiters here in Indiana are truly proud of what they’ve achieved,” said Dan Jones, director of recruiting for the Indiana Athletic Commission.
“Indiana is an important recruiting destination for Indiana University and it’s our goal to keep recruiting in our state and promote this industry.”
The new licensing law applies to all recruits from states that currently have a state recruiting license, meaning recruits from all 50 states can practice recruiting and work for recruiters without a license.
Kentucky’s new law allows recruits from Indiana to do recruiting work in Indiana without having a state license.
The new law also allows recruiters to do their work in Kentucky without having their own state license, according with the state’s recruiting website, Rivals.
The U.S. Department of Justice announced earlier this year that it was launching an investigation into possible Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election.
That investigation has focused on recruitment websites used by Russian agents to recruit people for Russia.
The Department of Homeland Security also issued a letter in September saying it was working with other federal agencies to investigate whether Russian operatives used social media to coordinate and disseminate disinformation about the election and the election process.
