On the eve of its Easter recess last week, the House last week passed a state employee pay plan, albeit a very different version than the one Democrats introduced in January. House Bill 13 now charges the executive branch with determining salary increases for individual employees. It urges officials to pay particular attention to workers with low salaries and those who have n...

On February 8th, 2013, ‘I saw my dream flash right before my eyes.’ Since I was little, my dream was to start a family and, when I got married in August of 2008, I hoped and prayed for my dream to come true. On September 27th, almost exactly 4 years later, my dream was finally coming true. After three tests and three little blue positive signs, I was absolutely ecstatic. It wasn’t two weeks later,...

  • Letter to the Editor

    Lana Sangmeister|Apr 3, 2013

    It’s disappointing that the Legislature tabled SB 295 – the bill to repeal the oil and gas tax holiday. Had it passed, the bill would have provided millions in new revenue to communities in eastern Montana that are facing major infrastructure expenses due to the oil boom. Now, instead of generating new funds to address the impacts, the Legislature is moving forward proposals that raid the general fund. All of the remaining bills that are still moving forward take this approach. Why are we giving the oil and gas industry a break while sim...
