LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester is joining a chorus of Montanans to raise concerns about the proposed budget cuts that could threaten Montana's outdoor economy and way of life.
Speaking with a Montana TV host, a business expert and the former Superintendent of Glacier National Park, Tester today raised his concerns over the President's 2018 proposed budget and its impact on sportsmen and outdoor businesses. Montana's growing outdoor economy sustains more than 64,000 jobs and contributes nearly $6 billion annually to local communities.
"This budget closes trails, locks up land, and shutters visitors' centers," Tester said. "This budget takes aim at Montana's outdoor economy, which is growing by leaps and bounds and is creating thousands of jobs each year. Over the coming weeks, I will be fighting to restore funding for our public lands so we can keep growing and creating more jobs."
