Texas Gov. Rick Perry will meet a delegation of lawmakers from California to discuss job-creation policies. The Republican-led group from California is scheduled to visit Austin for two days of meetings starting Thursday to learn about the Lone Star State's ability to attract businesses and create jobs.

Perry, the longest serving governor in the country, has often criticized California for scaring off jobs with high taxes and too much regulation. He is scheduled to meet with reporters at the beginning of economic roundtable discussion with the group from California.
