All over the news a few years ago here, our govenor was luring California companies here in droves and they brought their employees with them. No state income tax, other tax burdens are lighter, and in general Texas is alot more bussiness friendly than Cali or any blue state. It made headlines here for a good long while all the companies relocating, and I meet plenty of relocated people while driving Uber. It's a simple fact. And it's things like the electric mandate that will only encourage more bussinesses to leave. It already costs more money to do bussiness in Cali than other places, and now they intend to require all electric trucks, raising costs even more, while having a shorter range than normal trucks.You do realize your article is from 2016 right?

The whole "people are moving out of cali thing" is just off topic. First, you've provided no proof to back it up. Second, people move out of states all the time. I assume you mean in mass but you never specified. Third, people move for a variety of reasons. Attributing it to whatever point you happen to be on is foolish at best. You can't bend the rules of the world to fit your point.
