CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming is being recognized again as one of the best places in the United States to do business.

The state is ranked third in Pollina's 2012 edition of its Corporate Real Estate's Top 10 Pro-Business States report.

The annual study of job retention and creation measures a state's economic development prowess.

It is considered to be one of the most comprehensive and unbiased of its type for evaluating and ranking states based on 32 factors controlled by state government, including taxes, human resources, education, right-to-work legislation, energy costs, infrastructure spending, workers compensation laws, economic incentive programs and state economic development efforts.

Bob Jensen, of the Wyoming Business Council, says Wyoming's ranking is a testament to its pro-business commitment and environment.
