    CA businesses to kiss off state

    high interest in CA businesses relocating to TX. Makes me laugh!

    Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce officials, who sent a representative on Gov. Rick Perry’s recent California recruiting trip, report a spike in Golden State companies inquiring about relocating to Central Texas.

    Californians seem responsive to Texas’ low tax message, especially since the most recent state election in November, when income and sales taxes increases were approved by California’s voters in a measure called Proposition 30.

    “We have had a spike of double or triple the amount of normal (business relocation) activity since the November election in California,” said Dave Porter, senior vice president for economic development at the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce.

    • Like I said they're running the people out who keep the state solvent. It's not just business but individuals fed up with the liberal agenda. I have friends who retired a few years ago and they moved to Texas. They love it. Good food, good neighbors and everyone carries a gun, a conservative paradise.

      There are areas in Calif that are not safe anymore, that includes upscale neighborhoods where burgleries have gone up, the cops are outgunned and a backlog of criminal cases to be tried in court which are costing millions, a liberals paradise. The Dems are running on empty now, are they in for a reality check.

    • Many companies and individuals are moving to Arizona also. I did last year but not for tax reasons. Arizona has problems too. At least they don't have a governor like "Moonbeam" or a legislature full of fruitcakes.
