The 2015 Legislative session saw victories and setbacks to protect Montana's clean water, clean air, and wild lands. We passed the CSKT Water Compact and Sage-Grouse Management Act but water protections were put at risk and tax giveaways to coal companies. Find out if your legislator worked to protect Montana's outdoor heritage!
How did Montana’s land, air and water fare in the 2013 Legislative Session? Montanans stood strong and defeated attempts to degrade blue-ribbon trout streams and reduce opportunities to hunt and fish.
For Montana’s Air, Land and Water – Who we elect matters! If any voter doubts that, they missed the 2011 Montana legislature.
For MCV’s 10th anniversary, we highlighted how we helped protect the rivers, lakes and streams that define our state, and fought for healthy communities.
This is the first legislative session marked by a robust debate about what Montana needs to do to confront global warming pollution. The legislature also saw conservation advocates and legislators push the envelope on the most critical issues ranging from global warming to public access of Montana’s tremendous water and land.
This session saw the creation of Montana's Renewable Energy Standard and Election Day voter registration. What a year!
This session saw a lot of attacks on voters' rights including overly restrictive voting access and overturning voter-passed bans on cyanide heap leach mining and game farms. MCV worked to protect the bans but voter rights and access would have to wait until 2005.
MCV's first legislative scorecard! It was a tough session but we succeeded in passing a bill for Prairie Dog management and sent a message that conservation issues would be a priority in future sessions.
