Texas Job Growth Continues

Increasing job growth is causing Texas to stand out economically compared to the rest of the country. That is what Texas comptroller Susan Combs is saying today after her visit with the Amarillo Rotary Club.

She says technology is the where Amarillo is seeing the largest growth.

"You're seeing a lot of things, the high tech, lets say the trade sector all on the bottom. The Panhandle is growing, Lubbock is growing, El Paso is growing, the major cities are growing. I'm obviously still concerned about rural areas.

Combs sites Bell Helicopter as one of the most instrumental companies in strengthening the local economy.

That growth is expected to continue at a steady rate at least until 2012.
