The article reports that Republican California state Senator George Runner has warned Nevada's leaders against replicating California's tax and regulation policies. According to Runner, higher taxes have hindered California's economy that drove some of the state's best businesses to competitors. It is stated that California charges nearly 9 percent on corporate incomes and levies well-above-average taxes on personal income, sales and capital gains. He added that California's business regulations compound the state's tax burdens.
