Gov. Terry Branstad said Monday that he's heading to California in an effort to get West Coast businesses to consider setting up shop in Iowa.
Calling California a "happy hunting ground," Branstad said he'll travel there this week, but the Republican declined to name the businesses he'll be courting.
"What we do, we call on companies that already have an investment here and we call companies that are prospects," Branstad said, arguing that Iowa's efforts to reduce commercial taxes should make it attractive. "Their plan is if it doesn't move, tax it."
