Prop 23 Update: Waste Connections leaving CA for TX

Russ Steele

The trash company headquartered in Folsom are heading for Texas with 200 jobs according to NBC Channel 3 news update this morning. They were great supporters of the community, and  it will be sad day for many non-profits in the region according to KFBK reporter.

State legislature has made doing business in California too costly, according to one company executive. It makes more economic sense to move to Texas.

When will the useful idiots in Sacramento get the message, they are killing California economy with regulations?

  1. Are those “non-profits” from our county trying to help keep them in California?

  2. Sean says:

    I can’t see California making a change until the state reaches banana republic status where you have a high paid high tech design, software and media industry but all production and distribution is out of state. The will represent the upper class. The remaining population will be service and agricultural workers earning at most 2x the minimum wage. The middle class will be a hollowed out memory.

    “When will the useful idiots in Sacramento get the message, they are killing California economy with regulations?” Yes, and how about the useless idiots who spread across the countryside in 2010 to convince the sheeple that AB32 was an economic boon to California, and that they should therefore vote down Prop23. The Rebane cars will continue to proudly sport their Prop23 stickers – their message is more clear with every passing day.

  4. Russ says:

    The car wash got my Prop 23 stickers and I have not found any replacement. If anyone has a spare, let me know and I will be glad to replace them on my truck.

    Sean i thought it was there already – except no Ag without water ??

    Things are getting dicey out there in the rest of the world. Canada has flipped the bird to Kyoto, or in their case the loon, and saved themselves billions of ‘loonies’ (Canadian dollars) in fines. Over on there is an article that suggests that climate change is inevitable, and it’s time to embrace the new paradigm. Wonder how all that will play in Sacramento?

  7. Sacramento is too far gone for reality to strike them.

    Crabb, 12/13/2011 7:22, I realize you are referring to what is on Salon but is “climate change is inevitable” meant to be facetious?

  9. RL Crabb says:

    Bob W – Perhaps “environmental change is inevitable” would have been more accurate. Sorry to scare you with my alarmist rhetoric.

  10. Bob W says:

    Thanks RL. Not scared, more like amazed. “environmental change is inevitable” must also be facetious. Just like when the New York Times published that boys and girls are different.

    Wow, No Kidding?
