    Toyota Moving US Headquarters to Texas

    Toyota moving U.S. headquarters to Texas

    LOS ANGELES — Toyota announced on Monday that it will move its national headquarters to Plano, Texas, after a half-century in the Los Angeles suburbs.

    The company will create a campus north of Dallas that will bring together 4,000 employees from manufacturing, sales and marketing and corporate operations around the country. Also moving will be Toyota Financial, its financing arm.

    A company statement said the automaker is trying to create a "One Toyota" vision for the U.S. and Canada.

    With its worldwide headquarters in Japan, Toyota's U.S. operation has headquartered in Southern California for more than 50 years. Most employees affected by the move, which begins in 2016, work on a sprawling campus in Torrance.
    Toyota is one of the higher profile companies to do this. There are many others. Some come to Texas, others to other states.

    We'd prefer it if the Californians who move to Texas to keep their jobs don't bring the ideology that ruined California with them.

    Texans do for themselves, they don't look to the government for everything. We like it that way.

    id figured toyota would,their trying to build a toyota plant in temple texas,and even though texas follows epa regs,it doesnt redundantly require permit after permit paying to follow the same laws over and over again.in cali it seemed like the stat govt and each level of local govt charged permit fees for the same crap,re affirming the same laws,plus adding in new ones that made zero sense for safety,but rather seemed aimed at protecting certain industry from competion,which in later years has backfired.

    So Texans don't accept ANY federal money? Otherwise Texans don't do for themselves.

    Since 2012, 60 companies in California have said they have had enough of liberal Democrat's policies of taxing those who break a sweat to financially support state union workers and illegal aliens and have got the hell out of the socialist nanny state of California and relocated to Texas where you still have personal freedoms.

    It was predicted when those who don't pay their fair share in taxes in California who voted for the liberal ballot initiative to tax those who already pay more into California's tax coffers than the vast majority combined and forcing them to pay more, eventually they are going to surrender to the liberals and pack their bags and leave California taking the companies they run with them.

    I don't think theres enough taco trucks in California to keep the tax coffers full.

    Texas receives about 58 billion dollars more in federal spending than it pays in federal taxes, do for yourself and give it back please.

    More than 60. Those are just big enough for people to notice. Though I did read when complete that Texas will have more of the Fortune 500 HQs than California.....it's funny watching the leftist here squirm about over their reality.

    It is just a matter of time before texas, Fl and other states become the financial hub of the US. unforunatly when they do this people move and bring their idiocy i mean ideology with them.

    just look at CO for example. a lot of the people in CO are transplants to CO from CA.

    Good for Toyota. California will not change until the state is on it's knees.

    The 60 is just me quoting KFI's John and Ken. They used that number of 60 companies in less than a year who have left California for Texas.

    California is business unfriendly because of liberal Democrat policies of taxing everything and what can't be taxed it's regulated.

    Right now almost any state besides California looks more business attractive especially Texas. You get to keep more of the money you earned in Texas.
