INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Gov. Mike Pence wants the state of Indiana to do more business with military veterans.
Pence says that beginning July 1, the state will implement a goal to contract 3 percent of its work with veteran-owned small businesses. He's encouraging veterans now to register their companies with the state.
