Getting Involved with Your Legislature
The Legislature is the branch of state government responsible for making the laws needed to maintain public order and ensure the basic security of the state. The legislature is popularly elected and citizen's are encouraged to become involved. The Constitutions of the United States and of the State of Montana ensure every citizen the right to speak on every public issue and to be heard by officials at every level of government. The Montana Legislature extends that right to any bill (which includes any resolution).
