Emanuel, Perry Spar over Business Climates

Texas trying to lure down companies from high-tax Illinois


Mayor Rahm Emanuel gave Rick Perry a Chicago-style greeting Monday, challenging the Texas governor to remember the reasons for his visit to Illinois — a jab at Perry's presidential debate forgetfulness.

"I hope when he comes he remembers all three of his reasons," Emanuel said. "Because it will be a real test for him."

Perry was in Illinois Monday to encourage businesses to move to Texas and was scheduled to address a Chicago business convention Tuesday.
