Governors to discuss critical issues facing the West, including infrastructure, forest and rangeland management, childhood hunger, and trade relationships

Governor Steve Bullock today welcomed governors from across the West to Montana for the Western Governors' Association (WGA) Annual Meeting. As Chairman of the WGA, Governor Bullock is hosting his colleagues and guests, such as actor and anti-hunger activist Jeff Bridges in Whitefish, Montana.

"It's an honor to welcome my friends and colleagues to my home state of Montana," said Governor Bullock. "I am confident that as governors from both sides of the aisle, we can show the rest of the nation that when we work together in a bipartisan way, we can advance meaningful work to benefit the public good, on everything from trade to infrastructure and natural resource management."

*** Canadians urge Western Governors group to help tone down rhetoric around NAFTA

Canada's relationship with the western states took top billing at the 33rd annual Western Governors' Association meeting Monday in Whitefish.

The three-day long meeting brought together governors from seven western states, Hawaii and the North Mariana Islands to discuss a diverse slate of issues ranging from the challenges of cybersecurity on power grids to the economic force created by the explosive growth of microbreweries across the West.

But the first roundtable of the session focused on the longstanding, and sometimes contentious, relationship between the neighbors intertwined by a common history, trade, culture and national security.
