House panel kills bill to expand roof-top solar power in Montana

March 1, 2017View for printing

Republicans on a House panel have killed a bill aimed at expanding the use of roof-top solar power systems in Montana.

The House Energy, Technology and Federal Relations Committee deadlocked on House Bill 504 Friday afternoon, 8-8, and then voted to kill the measure.

All eight votes against the measure came from Republicans on the committee - including one of the bill's co-sponsors, Rep. Adam Rosendale of Billings. Seven Democrats and one Republican, Rep. Adam Hertz of Missoula, voted for the measure.
