After six decades of doing business in California, Toyota is moving its North American headquarters to Texas. That means 3,000 of the carmaker's jobs will be leaving Torrance and going to Plano, perhaps convincing California officials they should stop Texas Gov. Rick Perry at the border the next time he attempts to come to the Golden State for another raid on businesses. Toyota's surprise relocation will throw more gasoline on the burning argument about which state is a better economic model for the nation. California and Texas, two giant, powerhouse states that could stand on their own among the world's biggest economies, are seen as the perfect contrast between a high-regulation blue state and a low regulation red state.

Baltimore City Solicitor George Nilson appears to have shot down a proposal to require businesses that receive large city contracts or tax breaks from City Hall to hire local residents for 51 percent of new jobs they create. Last week, Mr. Nilson said the bill could violate a section of the U.S. Constitution barring discrimination against job-seekers based on where they live. But the bill's sponsor, City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young, insists the measure is needed to address the city's stubbornly high unemployment rate.

It's not a matter of "if" but "when. " Medifast Inc., the No. 3 manufacturer of weight-loss food products, is growing so quickly in that industry that there will soon come a time when it outgrows its sole production facility in Owings Mills and builds plants elsewhere. To keep up with that rapid growth, Medifast plans on making $5 million in improvements to its headquarters and plant in Owings Mills over the next two years. But it's also considering other sites for the future, including a possible West Coast manufacturing site and one in Mexico to serve the growing Latin American market.

When the Defense Department set out to consolidate its domestic bases, Maryland officials sought to win big. They not only prevailed - with Maryland gaining more than any other state from the realignment plan that became law Tuesday - they hit the jackpot. The latest estimates - and they keep growing - are that the plan will bring more than 11,000 new jobs to the Aberdeen Proving Ground and Fort Meade within five years. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Add another 7,500 new jobs expected at the National Security Agency at Fort Meade.

When it comes to the way we use energy, we are putting our country at risk. America's addiction to foreign oil hurts our economy, aids our enemies and puts our national security at risk. Rather than continuing to send billions overseas for foreign oil, it's time to change course. We should spend money here at home on clean energy sources, which will create new jobs, build new industries and make us more secure. When we invest in clean energy, this means our energy dollars won't go overseas; they'll go to American businesses to strengthen our economy.
