After breaking previous records in May, Texas' unemployment rate once again fell to a new historic low of 3.4% in June, according to the Texas Workforce Commission.
The then all-time low set in May was 3.5%, a number not seen in the state since it started keeping track in 1976.
"It's a red-hot economy," Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas senior economist Pia Orrenius said.
Employers in the state added 45,000 jobs in June, and 315,600 over the last year, according to TWC. Dallas-Fort Worth accounted for 14,400 of the new jobs.
Gov. Greg Abbott celebrated the growth Friday by tweeting: "BOOM: Texas just shattered the state's previous all-time low unemployment rate and again leads the nation in job creation over the last 12 months."
