FLORIDA RANKS NUMBER 2 as the best state in the USA to do business, according to a May 2014 study by Chief Executive magazine and website. They surveyed 500 CEO’s across the country about the best and worst states for business. The survey measures tax and regulatory regime, workforce quality and attractive living environment. Texas was number 1 and California last of all. To nobody’s surprise Florida beat Texas in the quality of living environment category. Beaches beat oil rigs.
