Does James Knox Really Support English-Only Laws?

Shares

Representative Knox, while describing his bill that would have allowed the state of Montana to renegotiate union contracts if proven that they would result in an increase in taxes:

Knox said it’s not about breaking unions, but rather fiscal responsibility. “They’re only wanting what’s been promised to them, and I understand that,” he said, “we need to change the promises, we can’t promise the moon and give them a rock.”

Promise: A declaration assuring that one will or will not do something; a vow.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
