LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester today helped secure responsible investments for Montana students and rural health clinics in a must-pass budget bill.
Tester worked with Republicans and Democrats on the Senate Appropriations Committee to include Montana priorities in the 2018 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Bill. Tester successfully secured critical resources for Montana's Community Health Centers, TRiO initiatives, and Pell Grant scholarships in the must-pass budget bill.
"A budget reflects priorities, and today I worked with both parties to prioritize Montana's students and our rural hospitals and clinics," Tester said. "This budget ensures that every Montana student has a shot at success, it provides much needed resources to our Community Health Centers, it helps us recruit more health professionals to every corner of Montana, and it makes these critical investments while living within our means."
