Legislative Issues

Legislative Issues of Interest to Flathead Wildlife Members:

The Montana Legislature can affect the way we enjoy the outdoors. Flathead Wildlife, Inc. was heavily involved in the 2017 Montana Legislature and we remain in contact with some Flathead Area legislators year round. A great success in the last Legislature was restoring funding to Habitat Montana to continue to purchase key parcels of land to maintain wildlife habitat and public access.

Issues of concern for the 2019 Montana Legislature will be more equitable funding for Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) control, restoring funding to Fish, Wildlife and Parks Enforcement and Fisheries Divisions and continuing to protect public access.

Flathead Wildlife, Inc. has commented on a national basis on greater sage grouse protection, bull trout management and wolf management.
