Rehberg, House Pass Funding for Small Businesses, Financial Education, and Drug-Fighting Programs

Montana's Congressman, Denny Rehberg, today joined House colleagues in supporting critical legislation that provides funding for Montana's small businesses, drug-fighting programs, and financial education services.

"This bill impacts every community in Montana," said Rehberg, a member of the House Financial Services Appropriations Subcommittee. "We must provide more opportunities for Montanans to open savings accounts, invest in the community, and create jobs. Additionally, we need to provide the tools necessary to get drugs out of our local schools and neighborhoods. This legislation provides vital funds for projects across Montana."

The 2008 Financial Services Appropriations bill provides funding for the Small Business Administration (SBA), Community Development Financial Institutions Funds (CDFI), and High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA), among other things. The legislation also includes more than $750,000 for Montana specific projects.

"As I travel all 56 counties, I visit with Montanans who are working hard to create a better life for their families," said Rehberg. "The funds in this bill will help them do that. As the sole member of the Montana delegation on the Appropriations Committee, I'll continue to work to ensure we get these essential funds to the President's desk."
