Indiana Earns Top Spot as Nation's Most Efficient State Government

Date: March 01, 2017

When it comes to their state government, Indiana small business owners are among the nation’s luckiest.

That’s according to a new report released by U.S. New and World Reports, which evaluates states on seven categories and 68 different metrics, ranging from economy to government. Overall, Indiana ranked No. 1.

“Strong leadership over the last 12 years has made our government efficient and our fiscal position healthy and solid,” Governor Eric J. Holcomb said of the results in a statement. “As our state enters its third century, it’s my goal to continue this success and elevate our position on all fronts to take Indiana to the next level.”

On individual government metrics, such as “government budget balancing,” it ranked No. 24; on “pension fund liability,” it ranked No. 5; and on overall “fiscal stability,” it ranked (No. 8.).

“To attract the talent and businesses necessary to position our state for a successful future, we need Indiana to pop off the map as a top performing state,” Gov. Holcomb said. “Folks around the nation are already learning just how much further their dollar goes here in Indiana, and with a strong focus on these key priorities, we will continue to move the needle by every measure.”
