TEXAS - CNBC ranked Texas Number 1 in several categories. This isn't the first time our state's earned that distinction.
It's 2012! Texas is number one for infrastructure number two for technology and innovation and number three for cost of living, the Lone Star State survived last year's budget crisis, and still kept it's triple-a bond rating intact. But Texas has it's weak spots- fishing near the middle for education and cost of doing business and 35th for quality of life.
