Florida Gov. Rick Scott is once again pushing people to move to Florida, and this time, it's over Netflix taxes.

Scott sent a series of tweets calling cities and states "absurd" for passing taxes on online-streaming services like Netflix.

He encouraged anyone who wants to stream shows online -- tax-free -- to pack their bags and move to Florida.

This comes as the Pasadena City Council takes heat after announcing a 9.4 percent tax on streaming video, CBS news reports.

The council told CBS News that they're calling it a utility, so it can be taxed like water and electricity.

Scott says he is traveling to California next week in a bid to convince companies to move to Florida. 

"With our low-tax, business friendly climate and our commitment to investing in our transportation infrastructure, Florida is ready to welcome more job creators to our state," Scott said.
