But it's also far more than just the greatest hits. Too many highlights from which to choose, so, closing eyes and picking one, let's go with ... this:
We recently visited here with a California company that may likely relocate to Dallas. They were impressed because Dallas and Texas have a stable tax environment. California certainly doesn't. We have no personal or corporate income tax. California does. Also, their human resources costs would be lower because housing and the overall cost of living is less here.
Another company, which is on the East Coast exploring a move, mentioned that the regulatory environment there was becoming too burdensome. Texas, on the other hand, has a great regulatory environment, and Dallas is a great place to do business.
