Message from the President

January 3, 2017 President’s Message

The 65th Montana Legislative Session began on January 2, 2017.  The session will be one that focuses on infrastructure spending and balancing the State budget with decreasing State revenues of $225 million at the last projection of a $4.7 billion biennial budget.  The legislature, both the Senate and House, are controlled again by Republican majorities.  Governor Steve Bullock (D) was sworn in the same day for his second term. To date, there are over 2,600 bill draft requests in and the Montana Bankers Association will be supporting, opposing or tracking legislation for the industry with our team at Crowley Fleck.  

The 115th Congress convenes on January 3, 2017.  The Congress will certify the 2016 Presidential Election on January 6, 2017 and the presumptive winner, Donald J. Trump will be inaugurated on January 20, 2017.  With a Republican Congress and President there is optimism that meaningful industry reg reform will pass into law in this session.  “Getting’ r done” will require continued engagement and action by our membership. MBA will be providing timely information on the legislative action for both the US Congress and the Montana Legislature throughout the year.  Stay tuned and get your email “fired up!”
