The group meeting with Abbott calls itself the Coalition To Prevent the Taxing of Retirement Savings. It includes Nasdaq, CBOE Global Markets, Citadel Securities, data center operator Equinix, IEX, Members Exchange, New York Stock Exchange owner Intercontinental Exchange, TD Ameritrade Holding Corp., Virtu Financial and UBS.
Abbott said the exchanges are eyeing Dallas-Fort Worth for a potential move.

Tech giants Facebook and Google have already seized on the Texas power advantage, having invested in large data centers in North Texas recently.

Three weeks later, McKesson disclosed that its headquarters was headed to Texas.
As part of the merger, the combined company’s headquarters would relocate from San Francisco to North Texas.
