Texas Wins Site Selection Magazine’s 2010 Governor’s Cup Award

Congratulations are in order for the State of Texas for being awarded the Site Selection Magazine’s 2010 Governor’s Cup for the most new and expanded corporate facilities. Texas has won Site Selection Magazine’s Governor’s Cup for 2010, which is awarded annually to the state with the most new and expanded corporate facilities announced over the year. Texas claimed 2010’s top spot with 424 projects, a 50-project increase over its second-place finish last year. Ohio placed second this year with 376 projects, followed by Louisiana (347), Pennsylvania (337) and Georgia (251).   The Wall Street Journal recently credited the state’s low taxes and employer-friendly environment with helping make Texas the job creation capital of the nation. Additionally, Texas was recently designated the top exporting state for the ninth year in a row, and no other state is home to more Fortune 1000 companies.  For more information about the Governor’s Cup, please look here
