Minnesota Among States LEAST Dependent on Feds
A new report has Minnesota ranked fourth on the list of the states that are least dependent on the federal government. The website WalletHub based the rankings on four key metrics:
- the return on taxes paid to the federal government
- federal funding as a percentage of state revenue
- the number of federal employees per capita
- the number of civilian non-defense federal employees per capita.
New Jersey was ranked as the least dependent on the federal government, while New Mexico was listed as the most dependent.
