There are two stories, at least, here. The first is about the Governor of Texas ticking off some folks in California by trying to recruit businesses to move to Texas.

Georgia Legislators Propose Ending Direct Election of Senators—Why Not Just Get Rid of the Senate?
It is a matter of public record that the United States Senate is a terrible place where serious policy issues are ignored; routine votes are occasionally delayed over concerns about non-existent terrorist groups; and proverbial cans are proverbially kicked down the proverbial road of sadness, gridlock, and despair.
