AUSTIN, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — More than 700 top CEOs around the nation are ranking Texas as the best state to do business for the ninth year in a row in Chief Executive magazine’s annual Best and Worst States survey. CEO opinions were gauged on a variety of metrics, including regulations, tax policies, workforce quality, educational resources, quality of living and infrastructure.
“This vote of confidence from business leaders across the nation further highlights that Texas is the epicenter for economic prosperity in this country,” Gov. Perry said. “I will continue to promote the conservative principles of restrained spending, low taxes, predictable regulations and fair courts that have guided us over the last decade in order to ensure that Texas remains the nation’s healthiest economy for the next 10 years.”
