If Tesla does move from California to Texas, it would hardly be the first recently, according to the Dallas Morning News

We noted last year that Hewlett Packard Enterprises was leaving California for Texas.

“Texas has claimed 114 headquarters of California companies from 2018 through June 30 of this year. That’s 89 more than Tennessee, which had the second-most wins in that period, according to a study by McKinney-based Spectrum Location Solutions and Stanford University’s Hoover Institution,” according to the article. 

Forty-one of those companies planted corporate flags in North Texas. The Austin area claimed 57, Houston got nine and the San Antonio area attracted six.

Irving alone got six, including one Fortune 500 company, an arcade game maker, a medical device developer and a manufacturer of elevator controls.

The article cites a list of the companies that have made the move.
