There's more fallout from California's business woes as Carl's Jr. wants to move its headquarters out of the state.

The fast-food giant's CEO told a business conference on Monday the company is planning to move its headquarters to Texas because of California's taxes, environmental laws and strict regulations on employee work schedules and overtime.

Andrew Puzder said it costs $200,000 more to build a restaurant in California because of this state's permit process.
