Utah Governor Reveals Why The State Was Declared America’s Best For Two Years In A Row

Utah Governor Spencer Cox revealed why his state has been declared “America’s Best” two years in a row.

Utah earned the top spot in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best States” survey for the second year in a row earlier this month.

The Beehive State’s success is attributed to a sense of community and charitable giving, according to Cox.

“One of the things that makes Utah special is that we lead the nation in upward mobility, social capital and connectivity, we lead the nation every year in service and giving charity, and that we don’t rely on the government to solve all of our problems,” Cox told Fox News Digital.

Utah was also ranked first in financial stability, giving it the top spot out of all 50 states. Cox said conservative values ​​have led the state to have the “best economy in the country.”

“I think the conservative policies that we’ve championed have not only made us the best economy in the country, but also, you know, we’re number two in education,” he said.

“We were able to get more funding for education, but we also gave the school choice to empower parents.”

“We gave our teachers the largest raises in our state’s history and gave families more choices so they can use taxpayer dollars to send their kids where they want to go. And so, again, not making it a zero-sum game, finding solutions that benefit everyone and small governments…I think those are the things that keep Utah n #1,” Cox added.

“We need to build 35,000 starter homes over the next five years to keep the American dream alive,” Cox told the outlet.

“And so we are dedicated to it. I believe it is immoral to not have homeownership and the American dream, the ability to buy a home and raise a family, which again are part of the social fabric of our society.

Referring to the mass exodus of people leaving California to other states like Utah, Cox criticized the “progressive path; the state chose and claimed it clearly didn’t “work.”

“I think we have a very strong economy. For sure. I think we are much less regulated. I think these are the laboratories of democracy. California has chosen a very different path, you know, a very progressive path. And I think that shows that it’s not working, because more and more people are leaving California. And I think what we’re doing in Utah is working, and it’s attracting people from California and beyond.

“People always ask me: How are you going to stop this from happening? Well, I can’t. I want us to be the No. 1 state,” he said.

Utah earned the top spot in U.S. News & World Report's

Utah earned the top spot in U.S. News & World Report’s “Best States” survey for the second year in a row earlier this month.

Utah usurped Washington, D.C. as the best state to live in this year, according to U.S. News and World Report's Best States rankings.

The state of Utah usurped Washington, D.C., which had ranked first for the past two years in U.S. News and World Report’s rankings of the best states.

The survey rated states in eight categories, including health care, education and the natural environment.

A strong economy and low unemployment made Utah the best state to live in this year, according to the survey.

But Utah was buoyed by its financial stability, for which it ranked first among the 50 states.

During this time, Louisiana was ranked as the worst state to live in due to its high crime rate, poor economy, and infrastructure.

It is followed by Alaska and Mississippi which occupy 49th and 48th place respectively.

For several years, Utah has been praised for its economic strength and fiscal governance.

It is one of the few states to report budget surpluses rather than deficits every year, meaning it has been able to afford a series of tax cuts. Utah entered 2023 with an additional $3.3 billion.

Lawmakers also made the war on homelessness a priority, creating a “housing first” system that got many people off the streets and into permanent housing.

Additionally, the National Bureau of Economic Research found that the state had the best response to the pandemic by balancing its residents’ economic interests and their health risks.

Justin Theal of the nonprofit The Pew Charitable Trusts said, “Since the start of 2020, Utah’s tax revenue recovery has consistently exceeded the national trend.

“In fact, Utah’s tax revenues have outperformed nearly every state when comparing its overall revenues in recent years to the state’s growth trend before COVID-19.”

Overall, the top ten states cover almost every region of the country, but more than half are in the West or Midwest.
