We provide our members with the tools and opportunities to make their voices heard on important issues facing Montana. Find resources for lobbying and taking action on bills, read our weekly bulletins, and find other important tools to stay informed during the session.

Bill Tracker and Directory

Stay informed about the bills we are tracking at the legislature, ways to take action, and how to find and engage your lawmakers.

Legislative Bulletins

One of the reasons Northern Plains members have been successful in protecting our quality of life in Montana is by staying informed. During Montana’s biennial legislative sessions, our members receive a Legislative Bulletin in the mail every two weeks and a digital version (Legislative e-Bulletin) every week to keep them updated on what’s happening at the Legislature. 


Legislative Scorecards

At the end of each legislative session, we produce a summary of how our legislators voted on the issues our members care about. Click below to view legislative scorecards from the last few legislative sessions.
