The Center Square (Andrew Powell), The Star News Network
The annual Rich States, Poor States report from the American Legislative Exchange Council
shows the Sunshine State outperforming all other states economically over the past decade and for net in-migration, thanks to the state’s low tax burdens and worker-friendly policies. The ALEC report is based on economic data collected over the past 10 years and performance rankings based on three variables: Absolute domestic migration, state gross domestic product and non-farm payroll employment.
