The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) has ranked Virginia 3rd in economic outlook among the 50 states. At a time when the economy is sluggish, this is welcome news for the Commonwealth.
Virginia is ranked higher than any other state east of the Mississippi River, and is the only mid-Atlantic state ranked in the top 20.
Governor Bob McDonnell should be praised for his sound, reasoned, conservative approach to governing without raising taxes. There is little wonder that Virginia is an attractive place to do business.
