Texas governor attempts to draw more business to his state
On his recent visit to the Bay Area, Governor Rick Perry worked on coaxing businesses to set up shop in Texas, indirectly saying enterprises and companies should invest in his state rather than in California.
Perry brandished his state’s array of perks for the business sector, such as the absence of state income tax, more affordable labor, and more convenient business regulations.
This was met by cynicism by California Governor Jerry Brown, saying weather conditions in Texas are not favorable compared with the climate conditions in California.
Perry’s words seem to have been making their mark, though. Bay Area firms such as Facebook and eBay are establishing campuses in Texas.
