Indiana Governor Mike Pence today joined lawmakers and representatives from veteran advocacy groups to sign into law a bill which expands veteran-owned small business opportunities in Indiana. The new law arranges an executive order by the Governor that requires the Department of Administration to procure at least three-percent of state contracts with veteran-owned small businesses and requires them to adopt rules, develop polices, and set forth guidelines regarding contract opportunities. The law also allows the Indiana Economic Development Corporation to assist the Department of Administration in various aspects of the veteran-owned small businesses initiative.
