Right To Work law boosts Mount Rushmore State

For the fifth straight year, the Pollina Report has named South Dakota as one of the nation's top 10 pro-business states. South Dakota was named the sixth best pro-business state by the Pollina Report, increasing from a No. 7 ranking in 2007, according to Richard Benda, secretary of the Department of Tourism and State Development.

Pollina Corporate Top 10 Pro-Business States is a comparative evaluation of job creation and retention efforts of all 50 state governments and the federal government.

The Pollina study evaluates and ranks states based on 29 factors including taxes, human resources, right-to-work legislation, energy costs, infrastructure spending, workers' compensation legislation and jobs lost or gained. The evaluation also considers state government-controlled factors based on incentive programs and state economic development departments.

The list is published annually by Chicago-based Pollina Corporate Real Estate, one of the nation's leaders in providing site selection and corporate relocation services.
