Missouri Governor Jay Nixon signed several pieces of legislation Wednesday related to veterans.

One bill requires licensing boards to accept military training and education for licensing requirements.

At a press conference in Cape Girardeau, Nixon said many members of the military have skill sets that are very transferable to the workplace, like truck drivers and emergency medical technicians - or EMT's.

The Missouri treasurer's office will have a team at the State Fair to help people determine if they have any unclaimed property being held by the state.

State Treasurer Clint Zweifel says his office has about $700 million in unclaimed property. Members of his office's unclaimed property team will be at the Mathewson Exhibition Center throughout the fair.

The fair runs was opening Thursday and runs through Aug. 19.

Zweifel says more than 400 account owners found $90,000 at the fair last year. People can also search for unclaimed property on the treasurer's website.
