Legislature

We provide our members with the tools and opportunities to make their voices heard on important issues facing Montana. During legislative sessions, Northern Plains maintains a full-time citizen lobby in Helena.

Legislative Priorities

Legislative Priorities

Northern Plains members make decisions about what issues most impact their communities and how to address them. In preparation for the 2019 Montana Legislature, our member-leaders voted to prioritize Country-of-Origin Labeling (COOL) and Commercial Property-Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE). Both policies would put money back into the pockets of local Montanans and support a more prosperous future for the Treasure State.

In addition to supporting COOL and C-PACE legislation this year, we are tracking a number of bills that both support and impair the work of our members.
