If you can get to Helena for public hearings that would be great. Please review our suggestions about how to best appear and present at a legislative public hearing at:
Attending legislative hearing


If you can’t go to Helena to appear before the Committee, please send messages to Committee members. Again, you can send one message to all committee members at one time via the Online legislative message form at:
Montana Legislature: Sessions


Be BRIEF. Legislators are so very swamped with material to read (they speak of it as “drinking from a fire hose”) that they simply don’t have time to and won’t read a long message. One short paragraph would be good. Just saying “Please support [MSSA bill number.]” would be sufficient.
