Alright.  So if you exempt those 5 states, what explains the rest?

ABInbev also have breweries in CA, GA, VA, NY, NH, FL, VA.

MillerCoors also in CA, GA, NC, VA.

Not all are low tax states. Just saying.

Well, I'm not going to run the regressions, but it sounds like you have, so you tell us.

Maybe legislators in some states are just lazy?

Fair point, but if you except the South, where they're just into that kind of thing, it still applies.

I missed NJ. You are probably right. Big business often has many reasons to locate a facility, taxes are just one.

I am wondering what the can of worms correlation is.
