MT Senator Tester to hold town hall in Helena

(U.S. Senate) – U.S. Senator Jon Tester announced today that he will be hosting an in-person town hall meeting in Helena next Friday focused on public lands and Montana's outdoor economy.

Montana is home to a $6 billion outdoor economy and with recent votes in the House of Representatives making it easier to sell off public lands, Tester wants to hear from Montanans what they need from Congress to protect the Montana way of life.

"Montana has made it loud and clear: our public lands are not for sale," Tester said. "Montanans know that but some folks just don't get it. I want to gather feedback from the folks who get out into God's country every weekend and hear from them how to protect access, expand recreation opportunities, and keep Montana the Last Best Place."
