  • Uncovering One of Montana's Most Underutilized - And Misunderstood - Citizen Rights

    Montana Transparency Project|Apr 10, 2024

    Did you know that you have a constitutional Right to Know? The Right to Know appears alongside your right to Freedom of Speech, Right to Bear Arms and Right of Suffrage in the Montana Constitution, and it is every bit as important. Under the Right to Know, you have a right to request public information from your state and local governments. When Montanans exercise their Right to Know by submitting public information requests, it increases government transparency, improves government officials’ responsiveness to citizens, and boosts c...

  • What Are You Going to Say About the 2024 Election Years From Now?

    STEVE CORBIN, Daily Montanan|Mar 27, 2024

    Conventional wisdom, witnessed by talking to your next door neighbors, friends and even strangers, reveals contemporary American politics is deeply polarized. Rachel Kleinfeld of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace notes: “Some scholars claim that Americans are so polarized they are on the brink of civil war.” The January 6 U.S. Capitol insurrection and ensuing lawsuits prove that a political civil war already exists. The headline of an op-ed in The Washington Post, authored by Francis Wilkinson, a U.S. politics and policy exp...

  • Department of Revenue Warns of Tax Season Scams

    Montana Department of Revenue|Mar 13, 2024

    The Montana Department of Revenue warns all Montanans to be aware of numerous scams and frauds related to their tax information and refunds. The most recent scam involves the advertising of a 1-800 number for the Department of Revenue that mimics the department’s call center number. When the taxpayer called that number, they were routed to a fraudster who attempted to get the taxpayer’s social security number and immediate payment for money that the taxpayer allegedly owed. Thankfully, the taxpayer was already suspicious of the number and ins...

  • Rosendale Removes Self As Senate Candidate

    ARREN KIMBEL-SANNIT, Montana Free Press|Feb 21, 2024

    Montana Congressman Matt Rosendale, who just last week announced a highly anticipated run for U.S. Senate, is dropping his campaign after former President Donald Trump - the ultimate kingmaker in modern GOP politics - endorsed his primary opponent Tim Sheehy last Friday, shortly after Rosendale's announcement. "I have long been a supporter of the President, and remain so. But I have been forced to calculate what my chances of success would be with Trump supporting my opponent," Rosendale said...

  • Don't Like Your Local Government? Vote to Change It.

    KEITH HAMMONDS, Boulder Monitor|Jan 31, 2024

    Jefferson County and its cities of Boulder and Whitehall have had the same forms of government in place for as long as anyone can remember. But on June 5, voters will have the opportunity to decide if they’d like to contemplate something different. Montana’s state constitution requires that every 10 years, all municipalities and counties ask voters to choose whether to establish a commission to study their current form of government and consider alternatives. It is a uniquely Montanan mandate, intended to give citizens the power to decide if th...

  • Who's running for office in Montana in 2024? Here's a running list.

    ARREM KIMBEL-SANNIT and ALEX SAKARIASSEN, Montana Free Press|Jan 24, 2024

    Montana’s 2024 ballot will host a suite of consequential elections — among them a race that could decide the balance of the U.S. Senate, two open seats on the Montana Supreme Court, two U.S. House races, the governorship, and a bevy of other statewide offices. And, for good measure, there may be some major ballot measures thrown in too. With less than a year to election day, campaign announcements are coming fast and furious from seasoned politicians and grassroots activists alike.
