A robust economy in Idaho pushed the state's revenue to $48 million above expectations in October, Gov. Brad Little announced.

The revenue brought the state budget nearly even with the forecast for the current budget year.

"Idaho's powerful economy and enduring budget stability are proof that fiscal conservatism leads to prosperity and opportunity for the people we serve," Little said. "In Idaho, we approach government like any responsible family would approach their household budget – we live within our means, save for a rainy day, pay off debt, give money back, and make investments where they count.

“Year after year, we have provided record tax relief and added investments in education, roads, and other key infrastructure to keep up with growth and maintain the highest quality of life. I want to thank the people and businesses of Idaho for their confidence in and love of our great state,” Little said.

The positive news about the state revenue figures comes after Idaho raked in numerous top spots in national rankings for economic strength and financial stability.
