    Montana Minded
    • There’s a new player in the field of Montana’s fight to defend it’s natural resource
    industries. Colstrip United’s co-founder and director, Lori Shaw, is heading up
    another project: Montana Minded. The same idea of advocacy through education
    as Colstrip United, but with a different name, and a MUCH bigger focus.
    • The people of this state have had enough of watching the industries responsible
    for providing the jobs and revenue that sustain their communities demonized by
    well-funded groups that have very little empathy for the working families that
    ultimately take the fall for their efforts. These people are ready to speak out and
    get the lesser known positive facts about these industries into the public eye.

    Constitution Day commemorates the adoption of the United States Constitution and celebrates the citizens of the United States.  The Constitution was written because the existing charter of government, known as the Articles of Confederation, had resulted in creating a weak and ineffective central government.  The Constitution defines the supreme law of the United States, with each article of the constitution pertaining to aspects such as the congress, president, judicial system, interrelationship between the state and federal government and process of amendments to the Constitution. James Madison, Oliver Ellsworth, Nathaniel Gorham, Alexander Hamilton, William Johnson, Rufus King, Gouverneur Morris, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington wrote the Constitution.

    Gianforte Guides Little Shell Recognition Bill Through House

    First Time the Bill Has Passed the House or Senate

    WASHINGTON – The U.S. House of Representatives today passed Congressman Greg Gianforte’s bill to provide federal recognition to the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians. Today’s action in the House marks the first time ever a bill restoring federal recognition to the Little Shell Tribe has passed either the House or Senate.

    “The Little Shell Tribe has had to wait too long for the federal government to act toward its well-deserved recognition,” Gianforte said. “I appreciate the hard work, dedication, and determination of Chairman Gray and the Little Shell people. Today marks an important milestone for the Tribe, and I am proud that I could help move their efforts forward. It’s time to get this bill through the Senate and to President Trump.”

    The Little Shell Tribe welcomed the bill’s passage and praised Gianforte’s efforts.

    “Congressman Gianforte has been a friend and advocate of the Little Shell Tribe ever since he assumed office. I want to personally thank Congressman Gianforte for his tireless and relentless efforts on our behalf,” said Gerald Gray, Chairman of the Little Shell Tribe. “The Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians Restoration Act was one of the first bills that he introduced, and he has fought vigorously for its passage.”

    “Today he accomplished something that never has been accomplished before – passage of the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians Restoration Act,” Chairman Gray remarked. This bill will help restore the dignity of my Tribe and force the federal government to stop ignoring us.  We now look to the Senate to continue on the Congressman’s great work to secure passage by that chamber.”

    Gianforte’s bill would restore the federal recognition of the Little Shell Tribe and allow the Tribe to purchase 200 acres of land to serve as its reservation. The legislation would make the Little Shell Tribe eligible for federal resources for economic development, health, and education.

    The Little Shell Tribe petitioned the federal government in the 1930s and 1940s for a formal reservation and to be allowed to organize under the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934.

    Gianforte introduced the Little Shell Tribe of Chippewa Indians Restoration Act, H.R. 3764, in September 2017. The bill passed the House Committee on Natural Resources in July 2018.

    To be enacted into law, the Senate must pass the legislation and send it to the president for consideration.

    The powerful gun lobby has spent nearly $3 million so far in the 2018 election cycle. Most of that change is centered on a race right here in the Montana.

    The NRA has spent around $400,000 airing ads against Montana’s vulnerable U.S. Democratic Senator Jon Tester.

    It’s the most money the NRA has spent against any candidate in this area so far.

    Voices of Montana will talk to an NRA official about that and many other subjects.
