Montana State Legislature

Legislative Week

January 13th-17th, 2020

The Legislative Council and the Legislative Finance Committee are sponsoring a Legislative Week this January when all legislators will be invited to get together, receive training, and have an opportunity to attend other interim committee meetings.

The purpose is to bring legislators together to “cross-pollinate” and provide opportunities to receive some additional training and share information.  It is also being held in conjunction with the study in Senate Bill No. 310 that is looking into annual sessions and we thought giving a chance to meet in January 2020 is a small way to try on meeting every year.
