Nebraska climbed four spots to second place in an annual ranking of the country’s most business-friendly states.

Nebraska trailed only Utah in the study by Park Ridge, Ill.-based Pollina Corporate Real Estate Inc. The report, which Pollina creates by evaluating 32 factors controlled by state government, gave Nebraska A’s in categories like unemployment rate, right to work, unemployment insurance, business inventory tax and transportation infrastructure.

Gov. Dave Heineman said in a statement that he was proud of the ranking, noting “we still have work to do.”
