Wednesday, March 26, 2008 Opinion: Story: Nonprofits: Quiet behemoth Opinion: Story: Nonprofits: Quiet behemoth: "t's the fourth-largest industry in the state, if the nonprofit hospital sector is included.

It provides 21 times more workers than the state's utilities industry, six times more workers than agriculture and more workers than the entire state construction industry.

It's the nonprofit sector, a combination of many agencies all around us, many of them hiding in plain sight. Tax law provides almost 30 different sections for claiming nonprofit status.
