The Growth Council began its work in 1993, established in statute by the governor and legislature, by setting forth a vision and goals for the state's long-term economic growth. Hundreds of people were involved from government, education, business, labor, the environment and economic development. From a vast array of recommendations, the Growth Council chose 13 goals and about 50 performance measures by which to continually assess the state's progress toward achieving those goals. The Growth Council has held workshops and focus groups, and has solicited advice from experts and the state's leaders.
