Florida Governor Rick Scott is in California this week to persuade companies that business is better in his state. Some might recall former Texas Governor Rick Perry’s trips to California in recent years with a similar purpose. Governor’s like Scott and Perry would love to convince California business operators that salvation awaits in their states from overregulation and costly red tape. But California Governor Jerry Brown has been dismissive of both governor’s efforts, saying they came to California to steal jobs because this is the state that has them all. Joining us to explain whether California needs to worry about these attempts to take California jobs is Barry Broome, CEO of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council. His organization is responsible for attracting businesses to Sacramento and has been promoting California’s business climate with the hashtag #FLvsCA during Scott’s trip.
