LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Gov. Dave Heineman is hoping to lure military veterans to Nebraska with a campaign touting good jobs for vets.

“The Good Life for Veterans” campaign seeks to attract military veterans and their families from other states to Nebraska. The initiative is a partnership between state government, business and veterans groups including the Nebraska Department of Labor, the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce and Industry, private business employers and others.

Nebraska employers and other representatives are attending a series of military career fairs in several states, including Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado.

The initiative began after a Nebraska Chamber poll found that more than half of nearly 450 private business respondents had experienced difficulty hiring qualified employees during the past year.

Nebraska’s unemployment rate is among the lowest in the nation.
