LAS VEGAS — Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki, chair of the Nevada Commission on Economic Development, announced that Nevada was ranked No. 5 in Chief Executive magazine’s list of Best States for Business in 2010.
“I’m thrilled that Nevada is continuing to receive national attention for being a pro-business state that understands the value of industry growth in creating jobs,” Krolicki said. “Nevada is committed to continuing its concerted and coordinated efforts toward a strategically diversified economy, which will provide new job opportunities and allow us to compete and thrive in the national and global economies”
In Chief Executive’s annual survey of best and worst states for business, conducted in January, 651 CEOs across the United States again gave Nevada high honors, while California was ranked the worst state.
Survey respondents were asked to rate each state in three general categories: taxation and regulation; quality of workforce; and living environment.
