In the fiscal year 2005, Nevada reported 28 California companies relocating to the Silver State.
EDAWN claims the Golden state has the most expensive worker's compensation rates in the country.
The agency blasts California's corporate income tax and personal income tax rates...compared to Nevada, which has none of these taxes.
