2017 Legislative Wrap & Voting Record

Here at Montana Audubon we can finally take a deep breath knowing the legislature has finished and that support for native birds, wildlife, and a healthy environment remains strong in our state. We are happy to share with you the completed 2017 Voting Record (below) to help you understand how your legislators voted on important wildlife and conservation issues.

During the 2017 legislative session, Montana Audubon’s team testified on 53 bills, supporting 29 and opposing 23, with neutral positions on one. With these efforts, we helped defeat 15 bad bills and pass 10 bills aimed at improving environmental and/or wildlife laws. In addition, seven bad bills were vetoed by the Governor. Unfortunately, 19 positive bills died in the process.

Many thanks to those who’ve made our work possible – generous donors, citizens heeding our calls to action by contacting their legislators, and those attending our rallies and lobby days. We couldn’t do it alone, and we will be back in 2019!

Please take a look at the voting record and review your representative’s votes. If they were champions for our issues thank them with a call or email. If not, it is still important to tell them your concerns. Please share this voting record with others and keep the results in mind the next time you vote!
