Gov. Butch Otter is calling for a “Hire One Vet” effort, echoing the name of his tax-incentive bill last year that was dubbed the “Hire One Act.” Though he offered no details, he said it'll be a collaboration of the state departments of Labor, Veterans Services, Military Division, Commerce and Education. “It is our responsibility to ensure that our troops have the tools they need to resume their productive civilian lives,” Otter said.
