2019 State Of The Year: Texas
Monday, February 10, 2020
Texas has been named Business Facilities’ 2019 State of the Year (SOTY), becoming the first state to win BF’s top honor for the fourth time. The Lone Star State won our inaugural SOTY designation in 2007; Texas also was BF’s State of the Year winner in 2012 and 2016.
The top five Texas projects in terms of capital investment last year brought a tidal wave of more than $30 billion in capex to TX, while the top five job-creating projects netted nearly 15,000 direct new jobs.
