This is just one reason the voters of Montana should return Jon Tester to the U.S. Senate.

As part of his continued work to protect Montana’s public lands, U.S. Senator Jon Tester re-introduced his Montana Headwaters Legacy Act, legislation that will protect 384 miles of Montana rivers —the most significant wild and scenic designation in nearly 45 years.

Tester’s Montana Headwaters Legacy Act will protect some of Montana’s most iconic recreational rivers—including the Gallatin, Madison, and Smith, as well as headwater streams in the Custer-Gallatin National Forest—to ensure they are permanently protected from short-sighted special interests. The legislation brings together conservationists, outfitters, and recreationists and is supported by the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, American Rivers, American Whitewater, the Montana Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers, and the Gallatin River Task Force.
