Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota governors share secrets of their states' bubbling economy
Friday, November 30, 2018
Governors leading three contiguous states — Montana, Wyoming and South Dakota — shared thoughts on what makes for economic growth during Big Sky Economic Development’s annual meeting at Montana State University Billings.
And, in time-honored chief executive tradition, Govs. Steve Bullock, Matt Mead and Dennis Daugaard pledged to steal one another’s best ideas.
“What you’re doing with ENDOW is awesome,” Daugaard of South Dakota told Mead of Wyoming, referencing a signature, long-term effort to diversify state revenues that are 70 percent energy related. “We should be doing more of that.”
