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, 2019 and 2021 Montana Legislatures and we remain in contact with some Flathead Area legislators year round. Successful initiatives included restoring funding to Habitat Montana, more equitable funding for Aquatic Invasive Species, restoring funding to FWP Enforcement and Fisheries Divisions and continuing to protect public access.

Issues of concern during the 2021 Montana Legislature were efforts to privatize wildlife licenses and to reinstate outfitter set-aside nonresident licenses.

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