The Census Bureau has released a list of the fastest-growing large cities, and many are concentrated in the South. We’ll take a look at which places are getting a bit more crowded and what makes them so appealing. Afterwards, we’ll talk about what President Trump’s budget cuts could mean for the future food stamps, and then examine how the oil industry is incorporating high-tech in many of its roles.
