Report Places Idaho Governor in Top 5 for Economic Freedom | Idaho


BOISE — A new report on Economic Freedom and US Governors ranked Idaho Governor Brad Little 5th. Washington Governor Jay Inslee was ranked 21st in the report. The highest ranked governor was Kristi Noem of South Dakota, and the worst ranking went to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Released earlier this week, the “2021 Laffer-ALEC Report on Economic Freedom: Grading America’s 50 Governors” ranks each governor based on their current economic performance and fiscal and executive policies during their tenure. The report focuses on economic performance, executive policies and fiscal policy, taking into account measures such as freedom of education, interstate migration, unemployment rate and debt.

Although state governors do not control all state policy and can do more or less depending on whether their political party also controls the legislature, the report attempts to adjust accordingly.

The top five governors in the report were Kristi Noem of South Dakota, Spencer Cox of Utah, Ron DeSantis of Florida, Jared Polis of Colorado and Brad Little of Idaho.
