Montana GOP attempts to call its OWN special legislative session

November 10, 2017View for printing

Political in-fighting is already taking place in advance of next weeks special legislative session.

Governor Steve Bullock called the state's first special session in 10 years to address a $227 million state budget shortfall.

Now the republican party is attempting to call a different session that would allow them to discuss more topics. A spokeswoman for the GOP said the governor's call does not allow them to discuss cuts.

Republicans will have to get 76 lawmaker signatures to expand the session topics.
