When the blossoms do show up, they bask in sunlight on days of earli...

Typically there may be several bills that are similar in their mission to accomplish relatively similar outcomes. They all have a price tag, so the job becomes one of weeding out some or all, maybe parts of several bills becoming one.

    Elinor Smith, UM Legislative News Service, UM School of Journalism|Updated Apr 27, 2023

    With 10 days left of Montana’s 90-day legislative session, eyes turned Monday to House Bill 2, the state’s main budget bill. The Senate got its turn with HB 2 Monday, amending the bill eight times before advancing it on a 28-to-22 vote.

On Tuesday, leadership canceled the House Floor session and the Capitol was, at least parti...
