The Bullock administration’s initiative will oppose the transfer of all Montana land at every turn; will restore the currently frozen Habitat Montana, which provides public access and hunting and fishing opportunities for all Montanans, free of charge (funded by out-of-state hunting and fishing license fees). It creates a state position dedicated to protecting public access to public lands, and launches a Montana Office of Outdoor Recreation.

This clear, steady vision will help defend Montana against the latest iteration of the attempt to privatize—take—our public lands, which are the heart and essence of the state.
