Alaska Ranks Sixth Best-Run State
November 29, 2012, Juneau, Alaska – Governor Sean Parnell today welcomed a report that determined Alaska is the sixth best-run state in the nation. The survey cited Alaska’s rich natural resource base, total exports, high household income and low individual tax burden.
“Alaska remains on solid fiscal footing, in spite of financial unrest around the globe and out-of-control spending at the federal level,” Governor Parnell said. “While our personal income tax burden remains among the lowest in the nation, declining throughput in TAPS poses a threat to our long-term prosperity. We must increase production and spur new investment in our state.”
The survey was conducted by 24/7 Wall St., LLC, a financial news and opinion journal. Read more about the survey’s findings here:
