Austin seeing interest from California companies ‘double or triple,’ chamber says

CA papers were derisive of Guv Perry and quipped he was walking away "empty handed".  Personally, I figured that that's what would happen.  In the meantime the phones are ringing off the hooks in the Austin Chamer of Commerce.
“We have had a spike of double or triple the amount of normal (business relocation) activity since the November election in California,” said Dave Porter, senior vice president for economic development at the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce.

Perry underscored that message in a conference call with reporters Wednesday as the governor, accompanied by several officials from Texas cities, wrapped up his four-day trip that caught the national media’s attention with its cheeky tone that included a back-and-forth with California Gov. Jerry Brown.
