Giving Thanks: Best of the Blogosphere from the Garden State, the Sunshine State and the Keystone State
November 25, 2008
Happy Thanksgiving! We’re out of town for the rest of the week, so it’s time to give thanks to a few of our friends in the blogosphere as they have been friendly to our state tax policy work.
- NJ Business Matters, the blog of the Commerce and Industry Association of New Jersey, mentions the Garden State’s bottom ranking in the 2009 State Business Tax Climate Index while lauding Gov. Corzine for signing the net operating loss carry-forward extension bill. They say that “despite the poo pooing of this report by our progressive friends, a tax climate actually does impact business decisions.”
- Rattler Nation, a blog on Florida A&M University, writes about a “differential tuition plan” being considered and cites Florida’s 47th place ranking in our State-Local Tax Burden study.
- Nathan Benefield of PennRepublican.com posts a piece on Pennsylvania’s budget crisis and their 11th place ranking in our State-Local Tax Burden study. Benefield says that “an analysis of the 50 states shows that those with the lowest tax burdens and those that cut taxes the most had much faster economic growth than those on the opposite end of the spectrum.”
