Report Says Colorado Falling Behind in the Region

A new economic development report released yesterday by the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp. indicates that Colorado is falling behind other states in our region due to a lack of investment in higher education, transportation and health care. The risk, according to the report, is that lucrative, high-paying jobs may land in Utah and New Mexico rather than Colorado, limiting future growth in our state. Coverage today of the report is in the Rocky Mountain News and the Denver Post.
