We Texans like to go big or go home, and we've come in at number 1 for the 12th year in a row!

Big business, that's what!

For the 12th consecutive year, Texas is the number one state for business, from the biggest to smallest.

Big industry to Mom and Pops, Texas is number one in large part due to our population versus unemployment stats and also for our tax rate, no state income tax and that we just don't have all those dastardly state regulations that some states have.

Florida also tops the list by adding one million private sector jobs in the past five years.  They've cut taxes 50 times and eliminated over four thousand regulations.

And that's what it takes. Adding jobs, keeping taxes low and the fewer regulations your state has, the better.

New York, Connecticut and New Jersey were the big losers on the list this year.

Go Texas!

Now, if we can keep Texas from becoming  'California-ized', we'll be alright.

Please, native Californians, start your new life and business anyplace but Texas!
