    Montana Legislators Nancy Balance of Hamilton & Frank Garner of Kalispell "Why We Need To End Super-Majority Rules"

    9:00 AM-10:00 AM
    January 3, 2019

    In a recent opinion Piece by Republican Nancy Balance from Hamilton, Montana she states, The Montana Constitution defines only a few cases when a legislative super-majority vote is needed — for example, before spending trust funds, amending the Constitution, or overriding a governor’s veto. Nowhere does the Constitution suggest the Legislature should adopt super-majority rules that limit debate and centralize power in the hands of a few.

    The 60-vote super-majority rule for removing bills from House committees has in the past allowed a powerful few legislators, who have received “silver bullets” or have made secret deals, to get their bills out of committee. This insider politics needs to end!

     It is time to bring fair and honest debate back into the process. Time to make the committees do their job instead of simply “killing” bills House leadership doesn’t like. Time to end the secret deals and bring transparency back into the process. Time to go back to the simple majority rule for bringing bills to the floor of the Montana House and ensure all Montanans are represented as promised by our state’s Constitution.
    Nancy Balance.

    Dan Byers, VP of Policy - Global Energy Institute. How Is The "Keep It In The Ground" Movement Impacting Energy Development In Montana

    9:00 AM-10:00 AM
    January 4, 2019

    Dan Byers with the Global Energy Institute will be discussing their recently released report on the “Keep It In the Ground Movement” and its impact on energy development in Montana and throughout the United States.

    The report received extensive media coverage including stories in the Washington Post, Politico, The Washington Examiner, Oil & Gas Journal, the Daily Caller, and on Fox News.

    Dan Byers is vice president for policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Energy Institute. With a focus on environmental and regulatory policy issues, Byers develops and implements strategies in support of the Institute’s broader education and advocacy efforts. Byers brings nearly two decades of public policy experience to his work directing the Institute in assessing the impact of existing and emerging federal laws and regulations on the U.S. energy industry. He frequently speaks and writes on energy policy and environmental regulatory issues and has been published in a number of prominent outlets.

    Mr. Byers says “While opposition to energy infrastructure projects is certainly not new, the origins of coordinated, focused campaigns are relatively recent. Beginning with the lucrative and polarizing campaign against the Keystone XL Pipeline, environmental activists set out to make opposition to individual energy projects a political litmus test. Led by Bill McKibben, the founder of 350.org, an influential and well-funded activist organization, this model evolved and was quickly expanded to other projects.
