|Voting on Healthcare|
|Not on ballot|
- Sponsor Matthew Monforton argued, "The federal government is entitled to enforce Obamacare … but it is not entitled to commandeer state resources to do. If President Obama wants Obamacare in Montana, he has to pay for it — he can’t force Montanans to pay for it."
Path to the ballot
Attorney Matthew Monforton of Bozeman sponsored the initiative and submitted documents to the Office of the Secretary of State on December 18, 2013.
