Washington State Ranked #1

US News World Report WA number 1 2019 servicesU.S. News and World Reports (2019)

That Washington State boasts a booming economy is hardly a shock. Our State is home to Amazon, Starbucks, Boeing, and a mature tech sector led by Microsoft. Washington apples, wheat, hops and grapes feed and inebriate the world.

But Washington has a supercharger: power. Cheap, climate-friendly electricity drives Washington’s economy, the nation’s fastest growing, according to the U.S. News’ Best States ranking of economic growth.

WalletHub (2019)

WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 28 key indicators of economic performance and strength, and ranked Washington State #1 for its economy.
