Corporations large and small are fleeing states like California, where high taxes, strangling government regulations, and spiraling, out of control crime rates are eroding profitability and customer bases. 

These companies could provide jobs, economic development, and additional revenues for Nebraska. We call on our state chambers of commerce and other business organizations to strategize a Nebraska Open for Business initiative, whereby representatives would contact businesses leaving or threatening to leave states that are hostile to commerce and induce them to relocate here in Nebraska, taking advantage of our lower corporate tax rates, fewer burdensome rules and regulations, and overall better quality of life. 

The employees accompanying these business enterprises would boost the numbers of our professional and skilled workers.
