Montana economy and budget may be the "envy of the nation"

On Monday, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer http://governor.mt.gov/ will present his proposed state budget in advance of next year’s 2011 legislature. It’s a budget his economic development guru says may be the envy of the nation.

"We’re one of only two states that’s been operating in the black. As a result of that, the governor is going to be able to present a budget that, as I tell people, is not just going to be balanced, but it’s not going to raise taxes. It’s going to retain essential core services and still have a good and even balance. And there are very few states in the nation that can say that," said Evan Barrett, Montana Chief Business Officer.
