CA Lawmaker Takes Job-Recruiting Trip to TX

Following Gov. Rick Perry's travels to Sacramento earlier this month to promote Texas’ business climate, a California state senator has returned the favor. In a press conference Monday morning in front of the Texas Capitol, California Sen. Ted Gaines said he had "come to capture jobs.”

Gaines advertised California as “a state of innovators and entrepreneurs and job creators,” touting new legislative efforts to make the Golden State more attractive to businesses. Like Perry, he focused in particular on a forthcoming $5 billion battery “gigafactory” Tesla Motors is planning to build in one of five competing states.  http://www.texastribune.org/2014/06/30/calif-state-senator-fires-back-over-tesla-factory/
