MADRID (Reuters) - Spanish utility Gas Natural on Friday decided to move its legal base from Barcelona to Madrid, a source close to the company said, the latest of several Catalonia-based firms to leave the region as it considers declaring independence.

Spain’s government on Friday passed a law to make it easier for companies to move their operations around the country.
