Texas Governor Rick Perry: California Business Recruiter

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

It's no secret that other states are trying to steal California's companies and the jobs they provide. But one governor is taking it to a whole new level.

Last week FOX 11 Investigative Producer Heidi Cuda reported about Texas Governor Rick Perry's radio ads that aired in a half-dozen California cities. Those spots touted his state's lower taxes and better business climate.

Now the governor is here on a recruiting trip -- kind of like a football coach. But instead of athletes, he's going after top business players.

Perry is visiting with high-tech, bio-tech, and film industry leaders. The first stop on Monday was northern California. His schedule also includes LA and Orange County.

As we reported last week, California Governor Jerry Brown calls this a "cheap gimmick."

California's Republican leaders say Perry's visit underscores how vulnerable California companies are to poaching.

Facebook, Apple, eBay and Chevron are among the major California companies that have created jobs in Texas.

    Of all the world's religions, Buddhism is one of the most mysterious and most intriguing to many Americans. The books The Dharma Bums, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and even If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him!, are all examples of how Buddhist concepts are part of the American cultural landscape.
