Treasurer Magaziner Statement on CNBC's "America's Top States for Business" Ranking

Today General Treasurer Seth Magaziner released the following statement regarding CNBC's "America's Top States for Business" ranking Rhode Island 46th in the country:

"Rhode Island can, and must, do much better than 46th as a place to do business. We can make our state an economic leader with a 21st century economy by investing in our people and our infrastructure. This means building great public schools, world-class higher education, and workforce training. It also means upgrading Rhode Island's infrastructure, which CNBC calls 'dismal,' to meet the needs of a modern economy. Rhode Island can be a national economic leader but it requires bold and innovative leadership that focuses on making smart investments that will catalyze growth and broad based opportunity."
