CNBC: And the Top State for Business is Texas

By July 10, 2008Economy

CNBC has just released its second annual rating, “America’s Top States for Doing Busines.”

No. 1 is Texas, replacing Virginia from the top spot: “The state’s large population, abundance of natural resources, and diverse population and geography have created a dynamic economy. The energy industry, of course, is king, and is the reason the Lone Star State unseated last year’s winner, Virginia.”

Top five:

1. Texas
2. Virginia
3. Utah
4. Idaho
5. Colorado
