"U.S. News & World Report" does a study each year that ranks all 50 states based on everything from education and health care, to infrastructure and the economy. 

And a new state is #1 this year for the first time ever...  Washington tops the list, partly because its economy is booming thanks to companies like Amazon and Microsoft.  And it also made the top five in health care, infrastructure, and schools.

The top ten states this year are:  Washington . . . New Hampshire . . . Minnesota . . . Utah . . . Vermont . . . Maryland . . . Virginia . . . Massachusetts . . . Nebraska . . . and Colorado.

Missouri came in at number 28 on the list, and Illinois was number 35.

Hawaii is #1 for health care.  Massachusetts is #1 in education.  Oregon ranked first in infrastructure.  Tennessee, Florida, and South Dakota took the top three spots in fiscal stability.  And Rhode Island ranked first in air quality and pollution.

Louisiana ranked 50th overall, followed by Alabama, Mississippi, West Virginia, and New Mexico.
