Waco, TX – According to the statement, in an annual survey conducted by Chief Executive Magazine, the rankings are determined by CEOs’ assessments of each state’s business climate, workforce, and quality of life.
Our state has topped the nation every year since Chief Executive began the ranking in 2001, with this 19th consecutive Best State for Business title.
Governor Abbott released the following statement:
“For the 19th year in a row, America’s CEOs have voted Texas as the best state for business. Texas is attractive to CEOs and their businesses because we offer the freedom and opportunity that cannot be found elsewhere: no state income tax; a stable, predictable regulatory structure; and a young, educated, and growing workforce ready to take on the jobs of tomorrow.
Workers know that in Texas you can find a good home, a great education for your children, and plenty of companies that provide an ample income to support their family. This generation of Texans is driven by freedom, opportunity, and innovation to solve the problems of the next century. We will strive to continue this incredible 19-year winning streak as we build the Texas of tomorrow.”
