Article #3 in the past week touting ALEC's "findings."

DN appears to be a sponsor of ALEC.

Nibley, Ut

I would say the DN is touting UT growth. Here is an excerpt from a Forbes article:

"Utah's economy has expanded 3.5% annually over the past five years, faster than any other state except North Dakota. This is three-and-a-half times faster than the U.S. as a whole. Total employment in the U.S. has shrunk over the past five years, but in Utah it increased 1.5% annually, fourth-best in the nation. Household incomes have surged 5% annually, which is tops in the country and twice as fast as the national average."

I would say that UT is doing well.
