Chief Executive magazine ranked Virginia fourth in its annual list of top states for doing business.
Virginia was up four places from last year’s survey, when the state ranked ninth. The magazine surveyed 605 CEOs in the country about their state’s regulation, tax policies, proximity to resources, education and quality of living.
Texas, Nevada and North Carolina took the top three places in the rankings. Michigan, New York and California were ranked as the worst states for business.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that Virginia ranked well because of its low regulatory climate and quality of life programs.
