The 68th Montana Legislature has officially commenced! Since our founding in 1972, Northern Plains members have had a strong influence on Montana’s laws and policies. We have crafted and passed bedrock environmental protections. We have defended the right of everyday people to have a say in decisions that affect our communities. We have always stood up to protect Montana’s air, land, water, and people.
Some of our most important legislative work has been to prevent reckless bills that cater to polluters and profiteers who care more about bloated corporate bank accounts than the shared prosperity of all Montanans. We expect to see more of those fights in 2023, and we also know that we’ll be ready, as always. We have something much more powerful than big money and corporate lobbyists. We have people power.
We have a love for Montana, a love for our communities, and a love for one another. We have integrity. We are tenacious and courageous. We are organized. We are built for this!
