This photo combo shows Texas Gov. Rick Perry, left, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Perry is countering Cuomo’s latest initiative to lure businesses from out of state with a renewed bid to snag jobs from New York, a tactic he’s tried from coast to coast. Perry, a Republican, is slated to be in New York City on Wednesday, April 23, 2014, to meet business owners to convince them to move their operations to Texas, where he says the business climate is friendlier. Cuomo’s Start-Up NY program, which allows businesses that locate near college campuses to operate tax-free for 10 years, has had commercials playing in Texas. Perry made a similar trip to New York last June. (AP Photo/Justin Hayworth, John Minchillo)
