Change Veteran's preference to vets hired, not vet ownership

The current system of Service Disabled Veteran Owned contracting preference has caused the cost of constuction to soar unnecessarily.While well intentioned, it has created a very limited pool of vendors with little incentive to be competitive. I would recommend that a minimum scaling factor for percentage of veterans employed would do far more to improve the lives of our returning veterans, including those who are service disabled.
