Ohio Slips Under Kasich's Stewardship

A recent survey by CNBC, Ohio has slipped from 23rd to 25th as a state to do business in under the so called business friendly John Kasich. Notable drops in ranking were in the categories of Transportation & Infrastructure, Quality of Life, Economy & Education. Business Friendliness & Access to Capital have improved a bit.
This does have Ohio leading it's neighboring states except for Indiana. Somehow Ohio has the next to worst workforce in the entire country - which I find hard to believe but it seems to have improved despite a crappier education ranking.
I have no doubt the transportation & infrastructure decline is primarily due to Kasich & Wray deprecating TRAC & doling out transportation dollars as political favors.
