The Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council out of Oakton,Virginia has just released it's latest rankings report on your state-and how small business friendly it really is.

From their website;

The “Small Business Survival Index” is the most comprehensive measure of which states are truly friendly to small business, and which are not in terms of public policy decisions. The factors included in the Index – taxes, various regulatory costs, government spending, property rights, health care and energy costs, and much more – matter a great deal to the competitiveness of each state and to the well being of small business.
