Kootenai County has started construction on a transit center in Coeur d’Alene, which is located on a parcel owned by the county and the Tribe, expected to open in 2019, and construction has started on a $2 million medical building which will house an office of the North Idaho Eye Institute. Last summer economic evaluation of Idaho said it is the far and away top economy and the fastest-growing in the nation, using indicators such as income and home prices and economic health, and many are deciding to come here because it’s a great place to work. The city of Coeur d’Alene opened a multi-story parking garage with 350 spaces and hopes that it will allow development in Coeur d’Alene and northward from the core around the and resort, as well.


A report boasted 312,000 jobs on track for a strong showing, predicting a slowdown as unemployment rate is one of the factors influencing predictions, while some attribute that to people entering the workforce, a sign that they believe they can higher pay. A new medical building opened in Coeur d’Alene, too, but agriculture is the engine that drives the economy. One element of the AVID program is aimed students who want to be successful in challenging classes and address the biggest issue facing Idaho poverty, which is more than an educational challenge.

Democrats cherry-pick all the good things in our state, but that’s just politics and the people know better, because under Republican leadership, economic growth and environment take top priority, and they are careful to avoid the high-spending, policies of nearby states that led to a lower quality of life. The economy is growing under Trump, just like the last two years, but that may change even though, during the State of the Union, the President tried to persuade that economy is booming thanks to him, since the election. Mary Daly, vice president of the Federal Reserve, explains that the U.S. economy expanded over the decades and projects that it will grow due to several factors, and the most critical is preparing our young people for the future.


Republicans lowered tax rates and boosted the tax credit, which is why tax revenues are growing, and since the dollars originated with the businesses they voted to return some of that money to help foster economy and make sure we have money in the rainy-day fund, in case of an economic emergency, while Democrats wanted to spend taxpayer dollars in spite of fiscal responsibility. Federal Chairman says that there is low inflation, although not every American has enjoyed the benefits of the Citizens Budget Council, so policymakers must address problems regarding long-term growth and interest rates, assessing how a global slowdown might impact the efforts on problems such as workforce productivity. You can see this in the achievement gap between students and their advantaged peers, in every measurement, as the economically disadvantaged ones fall behind, magnified by the fact that nearly 50 percent live in poverty, affecting the educational outcomes and our state’s fortunes.
