Missouri again makes “Top 10 Pro-Business States” list from leading brokerage firm, Gov. Nixon announces
Annual economic development report gives Missouri’s corporate tax index an “A,” puts Missouri in the top ten pro-business states for the fourth year in a row
JEFFERSON CITY – The fiscally-sound policies and job creation strategies of Gov. Jay Nixon’s administration were praised by the nation’s premier international brokerage and consulting firm, as it again rated Missouri as one of the top U.S. states for business. Missouri came in at number 9 in the Pollina Corporate Top 10 Pro-Business States for 2013, an annual study considered the most comprehensive in the economic development industry. Among other factors, Missouri received “A” grades from Pollina for its corporate tax index, unemployment insurance, and electricity costs. This is the fourth consecutive year that Missouri has been listed in the top ten.
