Some good news for Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour as he contemplates a likely run for the Republican presidential nomination: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says Mississippi is doing well on job creation, The Hill reports.

A Chamber study found that if each state cut back on its labor rules, it could help create almost 750,000 new jobs. The study graded the states on reducing barriers to growth, and Mississippi ranked in the top tier.

Barbour used the Chamber study to promote his accomplishments in a speech Wednesday. “We did make a real focus on our workforce and our working people, and it has had a very positive impact,” he said. “A lot of very high-end manufacturers have come to our state in the wake of this policy.” He cited General Electric, Toyota and Severstal, a Russian steel maker.
