I stand in firm support of private property rights and eliminating government interference in property management, both from the state and federal government. With overseas markets and commodity prices having a direct impact on Montana producers I will fight to ensure that Montana's agricultural products are competitive in the world marketplace.
In Congress, I was able to secure the first funding for a bison brucellosis vaccine, and I remain committed to fighting the threat of brucellosis in Montana. I believe that Montana has more than delivered on its obligations dealing with the reintroduction of wolves and now it is time to delist wolves and hand management over to Montana, where it belongs.
I also believe that Montana must stand up to threats from the federal government, such as the Clean Water Restoration Act, and any new "monument" designation in our state.
