Rutherford Poverty Q2
Jobs lead people out of poverty, and California is chasing jobs and entrepreneurs out of our state every day with over regulation and excessive taxation. In my district, we are losing companies because of the high electricity costs in our state and the unpredictability of environmental regulations. These companies are taking good, solid jobs with them to neighboring states. State officials should focus on reducing the cost of doing business in California rather than adding additional burdens on industries that create jobs and grow opportunity.
