Texas Best Lobbying Update: Governor Perry Says Texas is New Frontier for Innovation
On Wednesday July 17th 2013, Governor Rick Perry spoke at the Texas Association of Business Central Texas Chamber of Commerce. He discussed at length Texas’s current economic state and the reasons why the state continues to attract and grow business. “Over the last ten years, Texas has been responsible for 30 percent of the net new jobs created nationwide – that’s one state on its own responsible for nearly one out of every three jobs created in the U.S.” Gov. Perry said. Texas’s low business taxes and regulation policies make it a very attractive place for companies to build and expand. There is a lot of opportunity. While the rest of the United States is struggling, Texas is faring quite well.
