Site Selection Magazine lists Nebraska as the number one state in the nation with the most qualifying new and expanded facilities per capita. Governor Dave Heineman says this honor recognizes the state’s economic development success.

Heineman says there are several reasons the state took home this honor.

The magazine stated “Nebraska’s ranking as the top state for projects per capita is evidence of a highly successful economic development strategy.” The Omaha metropolitan area was ranked number one in Tier Two of new and expanded corporate facilities in 2013 for areas with populations between 200,000 and 1-million.
