This year’s report from Pollina Corporate Real Estate and the American Economic Development Institute ranked Missouri ninth overall in pro-business policy and planning. The report, Pollina Corporate Top 10 Pro-Business States for 2012, ranked states based on criteria ranging from labor and taxes to economic development and right-to-work legislation.
“Gov. Jay Nixon has shown that he understands — and is capitalizing on — the process required for job creation and the tax revenue that results from strong economic development,” Brent Pollina, vice president of Pollina Corporate Real Estate, Inc. and co-author of the report, said in a news release.
Missouri has been in the top 10 in this ranking since 2010.
