Let’s Take a Look at Lewisburg and its path to Economic Development

Lewisburg is Leading the Way
The American Legislative Exchange Council, in its first economic ranking of the 50 states, said Tennessee is the fifth-best state when it comes to low business and property taxes.

ALEC ranked the states by using 16 factors, many of them based on the taxes states assess.
Also included in the criteria were minimum wages, number of public employees per 10,000 residents, workers' compensation costs, and debt service as a share of tax revenue. The pro-business American Legislative Exchange Council also noted that Tennessee's "right-towork" status figured into the high rating.

Lewisburg Leads the Way by Offering all these Factors and More Including Pilot Programs and Other Economic Incentives in Conjunction with The Lewisburg Industrial Board and Community Development Board
