“Here in the Lone Star State, we have developed an environment that encourages entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams of small business ownership, further strengthening our economy and creating jobs for Texans,” Gov. Perry said. “Thanks to our low taxes, reasonable and predictable regulatory environment and skilled and educated workforce, businesses continue to look to Texas as a place for growth and prosperity.”You can read the whole article here.
