Idaho's Economic Trends

Governor Butch Otter and state legislators continue to slash at Idaho's state budget as revenues fall. Can a federal stimulus package help? Will the state's economy rebound any time soon?

Joan Cartan-Hansen looks at Idaho's economic trends and what economists believe will happen in 2009. Guests are Professor Don Holley, the Chair of the Department of Economics at Boise State University; Mike Ferguson, Idaho's State Economist; and State Senator Nicole LaFavour, D-Boise.

At the end of the show, Joan takes a moment to remember Silver Valley businessman Harry Magnuson, who died January 24.
