President Trump signs public lands package                                                           Subscribe here

On March 12, a bipartisan public lands package became law, and I was honored to return to the Oval Office to see the president sign it into law.

The law includes two measures important to Montana, including the permanent reauthorization of the Land and Water Conservation Fund and the Yellowstone Gateway Protection Act, which I championed and led.

The new law is a victory for Montana. Our communities came together for our public lands and deserve a lot of credit for getting this across the finish line.

It was the second time in six days that I met with President Trump in the Oval Office. I appreciate having a seat at the table where I can advance Montana’s priorities.

Good economic news continues

The great economic news continued in March. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the national unemployment rate fell to 3.8 percent, and wages surged by 3.4 percent from a year ago, the greatest increase in a decade.

Our booming economy is opening the door to greater opportunity for more Montanans, and I’ll continue working in Congress to promote policies that benefit hardworking Montanans.

Outreach program in every county marks successful first year

Montanans shouldn’t have to drive hours to sit down with someone to get help with a federal agency or express their views. That’s why I started my mobile office hours program, and the response has been overwhelming.

Montanans are bringing us problems they have with the federal government, and we’re getting results for them.

Since I launched the program in Harlowton in February 2018 through the end of March, we have held office hours at least once in every Montana county.

Congressional Art Competition open to all Montana high school students

The 2019 Congressional Art Competition is underway!

The annual competition, which is open to all high school students in Montana, recognizes and encourages artistic talent.

The Congressional Art Competition provides Montana’s high school students an opportunity to showcase their artistic talents. The winning submission will be hung in the U.S. Capitol where hundreds of thousands of visitors can see the artwork of one of Montana’s most talented young artists. It will also be one of my reminders of home.

To learn more about the program, please visit my website HERE.

Discover the artwork Montana students submitted in 2018 on my Facebook page (HERE).

Spirit of Montana

I had the honor of recognizing James Thompson of Billings for his more than five decades of public service. During that time, he helped build and grow over two dozen community programs to serve the residents of southeastern Montana.

Learn more about the recipients of the Spirit of Montana recognition on my website. Anyone may nominate Montanans for the award by contacting my office at 202-225-3211 or by email at https://gianforte.house.gov/contact/email.
