SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — First it was Rick Perry of Texas, now Iowa’s Governor is coming. Earlier this month Texas Governor Rick Perry traveled to California to bring business to his state. Now Governor Terry Branstad travels to the Golden State on Tuesday to tell companies here it will be less expensive to do business in the Hawkeye State.
The announcement came on Monday that the governor would be trying to convince California companies to set up shop here.
“You know California’s got a sign out that basically says: it’s like we used to say in the army, ‘If it doesn’t move, paint it.’ Their plan is: if it doesn’t move, tax it,” Branstad said at a news conference.
