Guest opinion: Room for diverse business in Montana's economy

September 1, 2017View for printing

Last year, the University of Montana conducted a poll that showed more voters than ever believe Montana's great outdoors benefits our economy and quality of life. Nearly 80 percent of voters said national parks and our public lands and waters had positive impacts on personal income and job growth in the Treasure State.

Montana's traditional economic base of agriculture, mining, and timber is still very important, but in the 21st century, more and more of us are realizing the great outdoors is diversifying our economic base and creating new jobs for our communities.
