What We’re Watching During the 2019 Montana Legislature
The session is over, but you can relive all the action right here
The legislative session runs from January to May, and we're taking our advocacy efforts to the Capitol to fight for the protection of our public lands. We'll be updating this post throughout the session, so check back for all the latest.
The Fight for the Badger-Two Medicine Continues
With Interior refusing to defend a lease cancelation, MWA is prepared to go the distance for this cherished place
Featured, In the Media
Rest assured that MWA and our partners, including the Blackfeet Nation, will continue to stand up for the Badger and fight every attempt by Moncrief to drill in this special place.
Daines Votes for Bernhardt, Jeopardizing Land and Water Conservation Fund
The senator undermines his own public lands agenda by voting for the former oil and gas lobbyist as next Interior secretary
In a SENR hearing last week, Daines told Bernhardt that the budget Bernhardt proposed for LWCF was “embarrassingly low.”
For the Future of our Custer Gallatin National Forest Wildlands
Act today to protect the Gallatins, Madisons, Crazies, and other beloved places in southern Montana
Your comments will play a vital role in mandating (or not mandating) the Forest Service to protect the Gallatin Range, the Crazy Mountains, the Pryor Mountains, and other revered wildlands in the Forest for the next 20 to 30 years.
Daines: Protect LWCF and Vote NO on David Bernhardt
The nominee for Interior secretary would be a disaster for a conservation program that Daines has been championing
If Senator Steve Daines intends on putting his money where his mouth is, he’ll oppose Bernhard’s nomination simply because Bernhard has all but assured the American public that he intends on crippling a bipartisan, hugely popular program that Daines is currently championing – the Land and Water Conservation Fund, which was permanently reauthorized by a bipartisan supermajority.
The Last Best Chance for the Gallatin Range
The Gallatin Forest Partnership agreement is our most promising path towards permanently protecting the Gallatins
The recreation pressure in these mountains is building, and we need to convince the Forest Service to recommend permanent protection for the Gallatin Range over the next year, or we could very well not have another chance.
