Mike Powell is the sales operations manager of Courtesy Moving and Storage in Fresno.

“Out of 100 moves, we are probably showing about 30 percent moving out of California,” Powell said.

Powell says his clients are calling it quits in the Central Valley – opting instead for Idaho, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, and Nevada.

“People are tired of the regulations; they're tired of California government,” Powell said. “People are definitely complaining about the cost of living here in the state of California.”

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, about 522,000 people moved into California last year, but more than 650,000 left.
