Legislative Alert: Bill to abolish Montana Department of Commerce and transfer functions to Montana Department of Labor Hearing Notification for HB621

March 25, 2013View for printing

Please be aware of a hearing tomorrow regarding HB621 that would abolish MDOC and transfer functions to MDLI. MEDA's leadership is compiling a letter to address this issue and will share with the MEDA membership later today. If you wish to contact members of the House Appropriations you can do so in several ways:

1. Send a letter to the committee secretary and request delivery to the committee by emailing Lisa Adams at LisaAdams@mt.gov

2. Use the online message form and send a message to the entire committee or individual committee members at http://leg.mt.gov/css/Sessions/63rd/legwebmessage.asp

3. Leave a message for the entire committee or up to five legislators by calling (406) 444-4800.

5. Contact sponsor Champ Edmunds. http://www.leg.mt.gov/css/Sessions/6 ... AWSID=12621

"MEDA stands in strong opposition to this legislation. Montana has made significant strides economically in recent years and is recognized as a business leader among the states. To derail an effective mechanism for economic development with a proven track record of success during a time when Montana’s economy is shifting and changing would seriously damage Montana’s bright economic future."

Tracy McIntyre, MEDA President

MEDA represents over 230 members, who are actively involved in local economic activity, community development, job retention and job creation for Montana.
