by jhwygirl Once again, Montana is at a crossroads of importance with regards to the amount of power our legislators will hand to a private company for private gain. Oddly, you’d think that the concept of handing over condemnation rights for the private property of Montana citizens to a private corporations wouldn’t fly in a […]

by jhwygirl The theme “Even MORE National Media Attention Courtesy MTGOP” is getting old, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to to anywhere. If FOXnews is using “Bat-Crap” and “Montana” in the same headline – quoting Democratic Governor Schweitzer, nonetheless – honestly, you really should reconsider things. Who’s running that ship? Will Deschamps? Yoy. […]

by jhwygirl In a post titled “Profiting from Hypocrisy“, blogger montanafesto exposes the troubled hypocrisy of Rep. James Knox and his pro-repeal medical marijuana stance. First the video: Read montanafesto’s post. Rep. James Knox offered his services to a medical marijuana business, at a greatly discounted price because his business “was slow.” There’s more – […]

By CFS The crazy seems to be piling up at the State House here in Montana.  The most recent example to bubble up in a legislative committee is Rep.

by jhwygirl This one has been flying a bit under radar. I have to admit I’ve been watching it, as I’ve received a few emails from friends. Friends who normally don’t pay attention to legislative stuff, and friends who are both opponents and proponents to the legislation. I will also admit that at first, rather […]

by jhwygirl There is a correction in this post, below, for HB75 This post is just for Monday and Tuesday. 105 committee hearings for just those two days. Keep in mind, too, that this is all on the downhill side, too – and I need to remember that also. Floor hearings are becoming all the […]

by jhwygirl Monday starts off with Rep. JP Pomnichowski’s proposals HB359, which would require public notice for open cut mining (gravel pit) permits and HB313, which would revise open cut mining permit regulations, and allow counties to permit operations.
