Virginia was ranked as the fourth best state in the country for businesses, behind Texas, Georgia, and North Carolina.
The rankings, published annually by Site Selection magazine, are based on a variety of business-friendly criteria such as less OSHA and EPA regulation, fewer unions, lower corporate tax rates, and a quality available work force, based in part on a survey of corporate real estate execs — the folks who decide where a company should build or relocate facilities. (In just the survey of those real estate execs, we ranked #5, tied with Tennessee.)
