Eagle Ford: Perry welcomes Shield Tactical
SHINER -- Gov. Rick Perry has highlighted Texas’ strong jobs environment, which allows employers from all industries to risk their capital and see a return on their investment. The governor spoke at Shield Tactical, which sells firearm-related gear and training services, and credits Gov. Perry’s economic development outreach in California with their decision to relocate to the Lone Star State.
In addition to reaching out to employers in states like California that have put policies in place that make it harder to do business, Perry has also reached out directly to more than 30 firearms manufacturers across the country in states that are considering restricting sales or manufacturing of the industry.
The governor highlighted the economic climate that gives every business in Texas, small or large, the best chance for growth and success, including low taxes, predictable regulations, fair courts, and skilled work force. The strongest indicator of the success of these economic policies is Texas employers, who have added more than half a million private-sector jobs over the last two years alone and a total of nearly 1.4 million in the private sector over the last 10 years.
Chief Executive magazine has named Texas the country’s “Best State for Business” for eight straight years, and the Kauffman Foundation picked Texas as a top state for small business for the second year in a row.
