Gianforte, Daines, and Rosendale are leading the charge by supporting the big lie, implementing voting restrictions, stripping local jurisdiction’s ability to build affordable housing, loosening water quality regulations, the list goes on.

FWP spokesman Greg Lemon said the move was prompted by discussions during the passage of Senate Bill 360, which requires FWP to review the state fisheries management plan and include “extensive public meetings” by June 2023. SB 360 is awaiting the governor’s signature.
