Once again, the best state for business
Item by Chris Graham
And the blowhards are trying to say that Virginia would be better off without Tim Kaine …
Forbes.com has once again named Virginia as its “Best State for Business.” It was the third consecutive annual recognition for the Commonwealth by the folks at Forbes, all three on the watch of Kaine, who was inaugurated as governor in January 2006.
“Virginia has long enjoyed a business-friendly climate. The Commonwealth’s regulatory and legal environments are tough to beat, as well as our strong, educated labor force,” Kaine said today. “This best-in-nation validation speaks volumes to our competitiveness in today’s global market. It’s a real honor to receive this recognition from Forbes.com once, but to be named the ‘Best State for Business’ three years in a row is a true accomplishment for which we should all be proud.”
