His effort follows up attempts to lure businesses from Missouri and New York, according to a WJLA report.

“When    you grow tired of Maryland taxes squeezing every dime out of      your    business, think Texas,” Mr. Perry says. “Unfortunately, your       governor   has made Maryland the tax-and-fee state, where businesses   pay     some  of  the highest taxes in America. That’s a job killer.”

WJLA    quoted local business owners who more or less agree with Mr.       Perry,   although Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said the state is   “doing     just   fine.”
