Last night, Governor Bullock gave his State of the State Address where he addressed legislative priorities in education, infrastructure and the budget. The most important priority however, was unity between the Democrats and Republicans. He proposed the challenge to the legislature to get something on his desk that “we can all agree on.” However, Republican speaker of the house, Austin Knudsen, made it clear that the Republicans are not willing to set aside party lines for the good of Montanans in his response to Bullock’s State of the State.
Compromise is crucial to Montana, and Bullock outlined the willingness for compromise in his address. Republicans need to realize that this is a time for Montanans, not party differences.
