Public Denied Comment in MT Leg Hearing. Have A Q About Today… Submit It


A lot happened in the judiciary committee and not a whole hell of a lot of it was open and transparent… I didn’t watch the proceedings, but according to Jhwygirl the proceedings were closed to all public comment.  However I have word that Marnee Banks, the Helena Bureau Chief for KRTV Great Falls is attempting to rectify the situation by currently taking any and all questions on today’s hearings.  Contact Marnee via email at or on Twitter @MarneeBanks

    My observation:

    After telling everyone that an executive session would start at 7am, and that the hearings were to be held later at 8, the committee tried to start a hearing on HB516 at 7am.

    Five or six proponents were already signed in to testify, NO opponents were signed in.

    While we can never know a person’s motives, the circumstances seemed orchestrated to avoid testimony by opponents. If so, that would be a disgusting trick.

    For some reason, I don’t know why, it didn’t work, I think enough committee members had enough integrity not to allow it.
