Texas has again been ranked the number one exporting state in the nation by the U.S. Census Bureau, making it the 12th consecutive year Texas has held this position. The state’s export revenues for 2013 amounted to nearly $279.7 billion, up 5.4 percent from the previous year and outpacing U.S. export growth.

“Texas continues to set a national example for economic success because of our commitment to the conservative fiscal principles that allow businesses to thrive,” Gov. Perry said. “The Texas model of low taxes, smart regulations and fair courts continues to drive the state’s economy, attracting businesses from around the world and helping the state remain the national epicenter for international trade for 12 consecutive years.”

This ranking continues a decade-long trend of recognition for Texas’ global economic presence. Global Trade Magazine recently named Texas as the top state for global trade, noting the state’s commitment to low regulatory burdens and wealth of global enterprises. The Lone Star State has also recently been named best business climate by Business Facilities Magazine, most competitive state by Site Selection Magazine, and best state for business for nine years in a row by Chief Executive Magazine.

Sheila, I am a Christian, try to live a humble and helpful life, am passionate about things that are important to me, and one of my on-going issues is to ask, continually, what is wrong with you? You've got to be the most angry Black woman on the planet and you never, ever seem to know when to quit putting forward your gut-level negatives at every turn. How do you go from the article to your slam of the President? Oh, I can answer that one..you are the most angry Black woman on the plant. BORING
