California can’t compete with Texas, study says

When it comes to taxes, regulations and government spending, California is losing ground to Texas, according to a new study by the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

The Competitive States 2010: Texas vs. California report is a follow up to a similar one in 2008, which also showed the Golden State lagging the Lone Star State.

Texas’ competitive advantage over California, according to the study, is lower taxes, lower government spending and less regulation.

Sally C. Pipes, president and CEO of San Francisco-based Pacific Research Institute, said, “If Californians still have trouble understanding why so many of our former neighbors have gone to Texas, this scorecard spells it out in painful detail.”
