"In oil country the state pays 2 clean up oil messes."

_________________________

Yes. On top of that, most of these oil companies pay NO STATE TAXES. Zero. So they are being paid to make money off of the state's resources.

One could argue that a pumped up economy brings jobs. But, it also brings crime, corruption and increased demand for infrastructure and social services.

With every boom, comes a bust.

In the final analysis, companies must be made to invest in the state -- otherwise, during a down-turn, they have no incentive to stay.
