"HID's decision to move their worldwide headquarters to Texas is proof positive that our focus on low taxes, smart regulations, fair courts and a skilled workforce helps create jobs and strengthen our economy," Gov. Perry said. "I'm pleased HID has chosen to call Texas home, and look forward to their continued success in the Lone Star State."
