Last week, Idaho Governor Brad Little provided the keynote address at the 2019 Annual Conference of the Associated Taxpayers of Idaho.  During his presentation, Gov. Little hinted at the release of a very conservative FY2021 Budget, which he will present during his State of the State at the beginning of the Idaho Legislative Session.  Several of our Idaho credit union leaders were on hand to hear the Governor’s perspective for the coming year and the budget outlines he is suggesting for his Departments.  In addition to Governor Little, ATI Conference attendees heard from several economists and experts on the current financial position of the State as well as programs being utilized and/or conceptualized in the State of Idaho. 

The final speaker of the conference was Dr. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of Research at the National Association of REALTORS.  Dr. Yun’s outlook for the Idaho was pretty positive, as he was quoted by Idaho Press as saying, “Recession? I would say no…Housing bubble? No. Should you be cautious about your business activity in Idaho? No.”
