Nashville – For the third year in a row, Tennessee’s transportation system ranks as one of the best in the nation, according to CNBC’s 2012 study “America’s Top States for Business.” According to the report, Tennessee ranks fourth best in America in the category of “Transportation and Infrastructure,” and is the only state topping the list that has no transportation debt.
Many states across the nation carry transportation debt, and must allocate a large portion of their funds to interest payments.
The CNBC report scored all 50 states on 40 measures of competitiveness, including the vitality of each state’s transportation system. Tennessee also ranked well in the categories of business friendliness and cost of living. This is the sixth year the news network has performed the study.
