Montana Governor’s new housing task force instructed to propose plans by mid-October
The task force made up of state and local government officials, business professionals, economists and low-income advocates are developing actionable proposals to make housing more affordable. The governor wants an initial list by the middle of October.
Patrick Barkey, an economist at the University of Montana and task force member, is skeptical of that timeline.
“You’re trying to solve in a month what we haven’t been able to solve for 20 years,” he says.
