Getting Down To The Basics

I strive to find the balance that keeps Montana as “the Last Best Place,” while also preparing for upcoming opportunities so Montana becomes an even better place for future generations to live and work. As a liberty Republican, I have a successful record of working through the politics and passing meaningful legislation for Billings and Montana. 

I am in favor of policies that make it easier for businesses to employ Montanans and create made-in-Montana products. As a member of Montana’s House Tax Committee, I have witnessed the complexities of Montana’s tax code and how much pressure property taxes place on Montanan homes and businesses. I have opposed tax increases, and will continue to stand for simplifying the income tax code, as I have in previous sessions.

I also know for a fact that Montanans love their freedom. Most of my legislation has worked to better protect our constitutional rights. This includes proudly supporting our 2nd amendment rights, fighting human trafficking, working to protect Montanan’s 4th amendment due process rights regarding technology and privacy, and passing one of the nation's leading 1st amendment laws.

Last, I believe competition makes our products, businesses and ourselves better. I have worked to create a competitive energy market in Montana to ensure we have a developer friendly, low-cost energy state. I have spent years working to move our state forward, and will be able to do so in the future with your support.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
