Jon Tester

Throughout his career serving the people of Montana, Senator Tester has been a leader in advocating for clean, renewable energy, protection of America’s public lands, and access to clean drinking water. As president of the Montana Senate in 2005, Tester authored legislation creating Montana’s Renewable Energy Standard. As a U.S. Senator, Tester has led the fight for permanent reauthorization and full funding of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, passage of the Crow and Blackfeet water compacts, and development of new clean energy resources. As the only farmer in the U.S. Senate, Tester maintains his Montana roots and always will.

Steve Daines

Steve Daines

Senator Daines has rarely sided with the conservation community on issues. From opposing the Clean Power Plan, the Clean Water Rule, to supporting the transfer of public lands to states, Daines has been on the wrong side of nearly every conservation issue which is reflected in his lifetime LCV rating of three percent. One exception is his reversal to support permanent re-authorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). After voting against LWCF, Daines heard loud and clear from Montanans about the importance LWCF plays to protect access to our public lands and later supported efforts to permanently re-authorize LWCF that eventually passed the Senate. In addition, Daines supported efforts led by Senator Tester to pass the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act and North Fork Protection Act in 2014.
