I don't know what USA Today is smoking, but Utah doesn't have "smart" or "sustainable growth." I'd like to see their source material for the claim that air pollution has fallen by 50% because I don't believe that. UTA built the transit infrastructure DESPITE the state, not because of it.
I think the success of the economy has a ton to do with the state. And by that I don't really mean the government, but the young culture here and entrepreneurial spirit - having such a huge amount of youth means the economy always adapts to whatever is the next big thing.
