I know people actively looking to bale from this state and move to Tennessee as well. These people are business owners who pay a heavy amount of taxes and employ a decent amount of people. California is exporting success and importing dependents.
I also recently spoke to a friend who moved to the Austin suburbs about 10 years ago while the “gettin’ was good” and his family couldn’t be happier with their decision. I’ll retire in Idaho when the time comes. My income source keeps me in CA for now. It’s the most beautiful state in the nation being absolutely trashed by the policies enacted by its government.
