Press Release - Texas for Business: Wall Street Journal

September 14, 2011

The Wall Street Journal's Peter Grant writes today that Texas has again been named the best place to do business.

Gov. Perry has made job creation a top priority while governor of Texas. By keeping taxes low, keeping regulations predictable, balancing state budgets without raising taxes, and passing sweeping lawsuit reform, Texas continues to allow job creators to let the private sector grow-even while the nation faces tough economic times.

Good news for GOP presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry: His state has once again been voted the best place to do business, according to a survey to be released Monday by the DCI International.

About 49% of the respondents to the survey by the economic development and tourism marketing firm named Texas as one of the three states with the most favorable business climates.

While Gov. Perry has been in office, Texas has gained over one million new jobs while the rest of the nation has lost 2.5 million. It's time to get America working again, and Rick Perry has the record to do it!
