Arizona’s economy is shedding its underperforming label and will start to push above the national average, according to a new report.

Robert Kavcic, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets in Toronto, expects the state’s economy to grow by 2.1 percent this year and 2.4 percent next year, following subpar strength over the past five years.
