Ohio places second in development rankings

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio placed second to Texas again last year in an annual survey measuring how states stack up in attracting to companies and getting existing ones to expand.

Texas recorded 657 projects in 2013, well ahead of Ohio's 480. Illinois was third, followed by Pennsylvania and Michigan.

This was all according to Site Selection magazine, which awarded Texas the Governor's Cup for the second straight year for its efforts. Ohio won the competition in 2011.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that the magazine added a second category this year that judges how states do per capita. Ohio came in second to Nebraska.

Even though Ohio has done well in the competition, the state still places behind many other states when it comes to recovering jobs lost during the recession.
