ICYMI: Gov. Perry Hails Texas As Haven of Personal Freedom in California Opinion Column
In an opinion piece in today's Orange County Register, Gov. Rick Perry touts Texas as a haven for both personal and economic freedom, urging states seeking growth to adopt Texas' successful formula of low taxes, predictable regulations and fair courts.
"In Texas, we understand the importance of individual freedom, and we work hard to keep the government as far removed from people's lives as possible," Gov. Perry wrote. "That extends to our business climate, as well, and that's been a big reason innovators and visionaries are increasingly relocating to or expanding in our state."
Citing examples such as Toyota, which recently announced it will move its North American headquarters to Plano, Gov. Perry affirmed the state's commitment to small government creates an environment where both businesses and citizens can thrive.
