     (a) Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the spouse of a person who is on active duty as a member of the Armed Forces of the United States shall be issued a temporary license, certification or registration by a board referred to in this chapter within thirty days of submitting the following to the board:

     (2) The required application fee;

     (3) Proof that the applicant is married to a member of the Armed Forces of the United States who is on active duty; and

     (4) Proof that the applicant holds a valid license, certification or registration for the profession issued by another state, the District of Columbia, or a possession or territory of the United States, and whose license, certification or registration is not and has not been the subject of disciplinary action in that jurisdiction.

     (b) Notwithstanding subsection (a), a board may require the applicant to submit to a criminal history records check, to be paid for by the applicant, and the board may deny a request for a temporary license, certification or registration if the criminal history records check provides reason to believe that the applicant does not meet the requirements of the board or presents a safety risk to the public.

     (c) A temporary license expires six months after the date of issuance and is not renewable.

     (d) An applicant under this section may submit an application for waiver of the temporary license application fee, and the board shall grant the waiver if the applicant has paid a fee for his or her previous license, certification, or registration in another state, the District of Columbia, or a possession or territory of the United States, within six months immediately prior to submitting an application for temporary license, certification or registration. The applicant shall provide proof of the date and amount of the previous payment.
