Jobs a big draw
Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; If it seems like half the people you meet are from California, you might be onto something. Census figures show more than 363,000 Californians moved to Texas over the past five years, helping the state to grow more than twice as fast as the nation as a whole since 2000.
They come for jobs and for a lower cost of living. Some are drawn by love. And although the transition can be rocky, many survive just fine.
