Legislative Update: Important Bills This Week

[Montanans for Limited Government] We’ll begin by expressing our sincere appreciation to those who made contributions this week. We are always humbled by the generosity of our supporters and their willingness to give so sacrificially. With censorship on the social platforms and the halting of political advertising there, Montanans for Limited Government is forced to pivot to other mediums. Reaching voters through print and airwaves will be more expensive, but we must overcome and adapt in order to stay relevant and effective. Monies donated will help us as we make the transition.

Tuesday, Feb. 2 HB258 Prohibit enforcement of any Federal ban on, or regulation of, firearms, magazines, ammo, accessories (Keep the Feds out of Montana.)Ask HOUSE JUDICIARY Committee for a YES vote by 8 a.m.https://leg.mt.gov/web-messaging/

HB257 Revise laws relating to government mandates, health board orders, city/county ordinances as they affect private businesses (This is important legislation in light of what has happened to businesses over the past year.)Ask HOUSE JUDICIARY Committee for a YES vote by 8 a.m.https://leg.mt.gov/web-messaging/

Wednesday, Feb. 3HB261 Limitation on state revenue through taxation. Will appear on November 2022 ballot as a Constitutional Amendment. (This provides reasonable protection from excessive taxation.) Ask HOUSE JUDICIARY Committee for a YES vote by 8 a.m.https://leg.mt.gov/web-messaging/

SB158 Allow legislators to conceal carry on state property (This supports 2A rights.)Ask SENATE JUDICIARY Committee for a YES vote by 9 a.m.

Please note, Montanans for Limited Government confers with Montana Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife on pertinent legislation. They can be contacted at sfwmontana@gmail.com

Our recommendations on these bills are as follows:

HB225 establish wolf trapping season dates: ask for a YES vote from HOUSE FW&P Committee asap as bill is awaiting Committee vote  https://leg.mt.gov/web-messaging/

HB224 allowing for the snaring of wolves by licensed trappers: comment to HOUSE FW&P Committee, Feb. 2, 3 p.m. https://leg.mt.gov/web-messaging/

VERY IMPORTANT LEGISLATION

Please read HJ5 and ask the HOUSE TAXATION Committee for a YES vote. (This declares federal taxation of privately held guns unconstitutional and unenforceable, and further directs Montana’s congressional delegation to vote unanimously against federal legislation or any other legislation that may in any way infringe on the constitutional right to bear arms.)

Keep reminding legislators that they should ask themselves these questions about every piece of legislation: Is the legislation constitutional? Does the legislation infringe on individual rights? Is the legislation truly necessary? Who will bear the financial and/or societal burden of the legislation?

Bringing you conservative news and commentary means it is tough out there on social media. We’re constantly getting kneecapped and constrained by tech companies who find the truth intolerable, resulting in our reach being severely throttled.
