Corey veto.jpg

Secretary of State Corey Stapleton has tried to negate Gov. Bullock’s veto of HB 132. Stapleton says he didn’t receive the veto within 10 days, so it isn’t valid. There’s no statutory timeline for the governor to send a veto to the Secretary of State.  Once again, Corey is out of his league.

HB318 CC eeek.jpg

Rep. Frank Garner (R-Kalispell) – in cahoots with Rep. Steve Fitzpatrick (R-Great Falls) – sponsored HB 318. The bill would put some legal fences around the egregious conduct of some party central committees in Montana counties. Pretty good bill; pretty big reaction.
