Texas Best Lobbying News: Rick Perry Releases Radio Ad in Missouri
Governor Rick Perry has just released a new radio ad in Missouri, aiming to attract business expansions in Texas. Texas is a well known magnet for business large and small alike. This is partially due to widespread relaxed business regulation and low taxes. The radio ad will be aired in Columbia, Springfield, Saint Louis, Kansas City and Joplin. These ads cost over 100,000 dollars but none of it is being paid for with state tax dollars. Texas has no personal income tax, while Missouri has one ranging from 1.5 to 6 percent. This makes Texas a very attractive place to potentially move for those looking for jobs or a fresh start.
