The problem is they move here citing high taxes as a major reason for their exodus and then vote for politicians that will raise their taxes.

I donít understand it either, because many of the people who want high population growth also claim to care about the environment. Itís weird.

Because they actually liked the things their taxes paid for, but due to stubborn indignation they thought they could have their cake and eat it too.

ďBah taxes are too damn high!Ē

ďWhy are there so many potholes in this road?Ē

My home state, Colorado, passed Minnesota for the 21st spot sometime in 2016. CO could conceivably be neck and neck with Wisconsin for #20 by the 2020 census, as it is growing three times as fast as that state, and only separated by only around 200,000, per estimate.If these trends continue, CO will certainly surpass the three states currently ahead of it (WS, MD, and MO) for #18 sometime in the early-mid 2020's.

The Carolinaís are growing too fast IMO, itís sad to see how much forested area has been lost in N Carolina to make way for housing and strip malls. Same thing with Florida, the natural areas are being destroyed because thereís just too many damn people.

It matters in terms of reapportionment and how many seats a state has in congress....meaning influence. Everything is relative.

Washington state is also not far behind from Virginia and growing faster, so it very well might be that WA overpasses VA before VA passes NJ.

IF this growth is dense growth it's better for the environment what's not good is everyone living 3-5 people to a house all with 2+ acres for miles that's bad for the environment.

Indiana actually doesnít have very good domestic migration; on that front, movement from MI and IL is about the only thing keeping it modestly positive.

Also for PA that only very recently posted a tiny and Philly. Because of some migration from NYC nd New Jersey. Kamm's .... surely knows this living in Philly now.

PA was losing for many years. Similarly higher taxes in NJ had PA benefit .... ever so slightly. Like Indiana from Illinois.

Certainly, no big migration to PA or Indiana like the movements to the Sunbelt by Corporate America steering it.
