Montana is the Last Best Place and known for its outdoor environment. Clean water, fresh air, and the opportunity to enjoy all Montana has to offer is the cornerstone of being a Montanan. That's why it will be increasingly important to protect Montana's constitution that calls for a "clean and healthful environment".
Montanans hunt, fish, hike, camp, raft and climb. Montana's pristine environment is not only our legacy, but our future. Development of alternative energy, such as wind, are going to play a significant role in Montana's future. Our tourism industry depends on it.
Montana holds potential in energy resources, including being listed as one of the top five states in the nation for wind energy potential. Diversifying our energy sources is a smart strategy both for our environment, and our pocketbook.
