    Sam Loveridge, Executive Director-Yellowstone Area Chamber of Commerce & Senator Steve Daines speaking On The 2019 Legislature

    9:00 AM-10:00 AM
    January 7, 2019

    Friday, local business owners announced the formation of the Yellowstone Area Chamber of Commerce. The group was formed in response to a growing belief among business owners that common-sense, pro-business solutions have become secondary policy goals. The group will educate and advocate for proven and business-centric policy prescriptions that create a positive environment for businesses and economic growth.

    The Yellowstone Area Chamber of Commerce has formed a Board and hired an Executive Director and lobbyist. According to Sam Loveridge, the Executive Director of YACC, “The YACC is committed to advancing policies and ideas that will grow the economy and help all businesses prosper. We’re not controlled by a single massive company or political party. If something is good for business, we will support it.”

    The group and its members will fight for:

    • Free-markets solutions—not more taxes, bureaucrats, and regulations.
    • A straightforward and equally applied tax code that neither favors nor burdens specific businesses or industries.
    • The repeal of unneeded regulations and bureaucratic red tape that disincentives growth and starting a business.
    • Accountability for elected officials who serve the people—not special interests.
    • An education system built for the 21st century where our best and brightest can find good-paying, fulfilling jobs in the area.

    As the 2019 Legislative session nears, the YACC plans to lobby for legislation that will spur innovation, competition, and free and open markets. The group will mobilize its members to ensure that lawmakers are fully informed of the positive and negative effects that varying legislation will have on the business environment, wages, and employment.

    Over the coming months, YACC will be recruiting businesses in the Yellowstone area that also seek to create a stronger climate for business in the area. “The Yellowstone Area Chamber was formed because businesses deserve a voice—they deserve someone fighting for them every day.” Sam Loveridge goes on to say, “Our goal is to create a strong, innovative, and competitive marketplace where businesses prosper, grow, and employ more people.

    The Yellowstone Area Chamber of Commerce will provide members with opportunities to network with other local businesses, build relationships, and find new customers and vendors. YACC will also connect prospective employees with member-businesses and provide opportunities for businesses to market their goods and services.

    To learn more about the group or become a member of the Yellowstone Area Chamber of Commerce visit YellowstoneChamber.org or contact Sam Loveridge at 406-670-8522.

    Constitutional Scholar Robert Brown - The Unknowns Surrounding A Constitutional Convention Pose An Unacceptable Risk

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

    A well-funded, highly coordinated national effort is underway to call a constitutional convention, under Article V of the U.S. Constitution, for the first time in history. The result of such a convention could be a complete overhaul of the Constitution and supporters of the convention are dangerously close to succeeding. With special interest groups gaining more momentum, conservative advocates are just six states short of reaching the constitutionally-required 34-state goal. They are targeting Republican-controlled legislatures in 2018 and are within striking distance.

    The unknowns surrounding a constitutional convention pose an unacceptable risk, particularly in the current polarized political climate. Given how close calling a new convention is, it’s time to spotlight that risk and sound an alarm for the preservation of our Constitution.

    Robert Brown will be speaking on those risks!
