State Legislative Program

Make your voice heard at the 2015 Montana Legislative Session!
Decisions made at the Montana legislature determine the cost of tuition, the quality of facilities, the pay of professors and a host of other issues important to students. This makes the student voice incredibly important to ensure quality higher education in Montana. Students can play a powerful role in the 2015 legislature if we band together and present an organized message. If you are at all interested in helping out, stay tuned for more information.

Our mission

This program is non-partisan and seeks to inform and facilitate MSU's student involvement in local, state, and national political issues, as well as represent the interests of MSU's student body during each state legislative session.

The committee

The committee is made up of any interested students.  It's a great way to get involved and informed about the issues facing MSU and higher education in the state of Montana.  The committee tracks upcoming bills of interest, interfaces with University and government officials, and works with the student lobbyist, a student paid to live in Helena and lobby for MSU student interests during the legislative session. To hear more information, stay tuned!

How can I get involved?

Garrett Lankford || ASMSU State Legislative Director/ Student Lobbyist 

Hello there, my name is Garrett and I am your new ASMSU State Legislative Director and Student Lobbyist for the 2014-2015 year! I am currently a junior in the Political Science program and in my free time I love showing my Bobcat pride by attending sporting events and giving tours as an Advocat. The main reason I have chosen to work with ASMSU is so that I can serve our student body and be a voice for all of us to our elected Representatives. It’s going to be a great year for us and I can't wait to get to work.
