The California Unemployment Act

So if California has a new emissions law, and Nevada doesn't, how many companies do you think move a few hundred miles across the border?

California would become the first state to impose a limit on all greenhouse gas emissions, including those from industrial plants,

This is a real simple cost-benefit analysis: Does complying with the law cost less than moving?

Yes -> Stay in California
No -> Move the hell out of the state

My guess is that the vast majority of small factories and businesses will be moving.
