Nevada is 6th most free state in the union

nevadaNevada is the sixth most “free” state in the nation, according to a state-by-state analysis of personal, social and economic liberties by George Mason University.

The analysis ranks states on the amount of government intervention on economic, regulatory and personal freedoms.

The term “freedom” was broadly defined as an individual’s right to “dispose of their lives, liberties and properties as they see fit, as long as they do not infringe on the rights of others.”

The report recommended three policy changes to improve Nevada’s score in 2013: repeal health-insurance coverage mandates, deregulate private schools and revert the minimum wage pay rate to the federal standard.

New Hampshire is the most “free” state in the union. South Dakota, Indiana, Idaho and Missouri rounded out the top five states ahead of Nevada.

New York was “by far the least free state in the union,” according to the report. The Empire State has “by far the highest taxes in the country,” the strictest health insurance regulations and some of the most restrictive tobacco and gun laws, the study said.

New Jersey, California, Hawaii and Massachusetts rounded out the bottom five states in the rankings.
