The Lone Star State, the magazine's 2013 State of the Year, continued to show its dominance across several flagship rankings categories, a performance you would expect from the nation's most dynamic state. Louisiana, also a strong finisher, has steadfastly executed a diverse growth strategy that is nurturing new high-tech ventures while building on the Pelican State's traditional strength in the oil and gas sectors. Speaking of the latter, the oil boom in North Dakota continues to propel the Peace Garden State to the top of the list of economic powerhouses. Washington emerged as a leader in the revamped alternative energy categories, while Utah notched another impressive across-the-board finish.
The complete results of Business Facilities' 9th Annual Rankings Report will be posted on www.BusinessFacilities.com on August 5. The results also will be featured in the cover story of BF's July/August 2013 issue.
