Wow, did you hear the news out of Boise today?

Idaho Economist John Church told a crowd of about 700 business leaders there are good times ahead.

Church said a national economic forecast firm ranks Idaho the number one state in the nation for employment growth over the next 5 years.

That same firm predicts we will have  the 5th highest population growth. 

That firm is IHS Global Insight.

We've put a story here on so that can read more about this forecast.
