Northern Ag Network Note: The following is a press release from Montana Congressman Denny Rehberg. For details on the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act Senator Max Baucus, CLICK HERE.
BILLINGS – Montana’s Congressman, Denny Rehberg, today announced his intention to hold a public listening session to discuss the implications of the Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act, introduced by Senator Max Baucus and cosponsored by Senator Jon Tester. In 2010, Rehberg held similar public forums to discuss Senator Tester’s wilderness bill.
“Most of Senator Baucus’ wilderness bill support is coming from the same groups that support Senator Tester’s wilderness bill,” said Rehberg. “When I held public meetings about Senator Tester’s bill, it quickly became obvious that it was a lot less popular than the manufactured support had led on. From guarantees on grazing rights to restricted energy production, I’ve already heard some pretty major concerns about Sen. Baucus’ bill, and I intend to give all Montanans the voice they deserve in their government.”
Rehberg has hosted more than 100 public listening sessions across Montana since President Obama was sworn into office. He was the only member of the Montana delegation to hold such meetings before the final passage of the President’s unpopular health care law.
