MT Needs Rosendale in Congress

Matt Rosendale moved from a thriving business career to a successful and conservative public servant who constantly focused on lower taxes while increasing efficiencies.  He currently serves as Montana Auditor, also called the Commissioner for Insurance and Securities.

Elected to the Montana House of Representatives in 2011, Matt and I took on many challenges together.  His constituents promoted him to the Montana Senate in 2013.  That session the Speaker of the House appointed me as chair of the budget subcommittee for natural resources and transportation, and then-Senator Matt Rosendale was appointed vice chair.  Side by side, item by item, we examined proposed expenditures for six departments, and we cut a ton of fat.  In the 2015 Legislature, Republican senators showed confidence in Rosendale by choosing him as majority leader.

Then in 2016, Montana voters elected him Montana Auditor, which really made him Commissioner for Insurance and Securities.  Immediately he took on big issues, even while trimming operating expenses by 23 percent.  As a member of the Land Board, Matt made good decisions.  He is a hard worker and a real winner.  I respect him.

As a candidate for US Senate in 2018, he gained the ear of our great president.  A few months ago, I was invited to the USMCA Treaty signing ceremony at the White House.  Matt Rosendale was there, always promoting Montana interests.

The people of Montana need Matt’s sharp mind, energy, work ethic and Donald Trump connections in Washington, DC.  I endorse Matt Rosendale for US Congress.

Vote for climate action,
we need to ask and we need to vote

Ask this question of every candidate, no matter the political contest, “What should Congress do to combat climate change?”  School Boards, Municipal Government, County Commissioner, Public Service Commission, Governor, State Legislature and other state offices, and Congress; every election is vitally important.  Several municipal governments in Montana are acting on climate.  We can continue to grow political will for climate action with our votes.

Climate change is caused by global warming.  Carbon dioxide blankets the Earth and traps in heat.  Burning coal, oil, and natural gas makes more carbon dioxide.  The Earth is getting warmer as the carbon dioxide blanket thickens.  97% of climate scientists have concluded that humans are causing global warming, largely due to burning fossil fuels.

Leading experts say carbon dividends are the best way to curb climate change.  Carbon dividends have broad bipartisan support because they are fair, transparent, do not grow government, and boost local economies.  Most importantly they are very effective at quickly reducing carbon dioxide pollution by impacting all sources.

The Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, HR 763, is based on carbon dividends.  It puts a slowing rising fee on carbon pollution at the source (mine or well) and returns net revenue to all Americans evenly.  It will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 40% in the first 12 years.  Monthly cash payments are fair, especially to middle and low income families.  The economic boost will create jobs in our communities.  And, a predictable price on carbon pollution will drive investment in Montana clean energy projects.  For more information see:  https://energyinnovationact.org

A clean energy future is an awesome future!  Ask candidates “What should Congress do to combat climate change?” Then, be sure to vote.
