Heritage Project ambassador and financial adviser, Bill Stoddart, just summarized the work of the Montana legislature to invest in our outdoor heritage.  Here’s a quick snippet:

But as Montana grows, more demands are being placed on the public lands, parks, and wildlife habitat that shape our lives. It’s essential that Montana’s current state legislature help us meet this rising demand by adequately funding our great outdoors, or we risk overwhelming the public lands on which we’ve built our lives and livelihoods.”
