The argument for the amendment was prepared by Senator William Glaser (R-44) and Rep. Diane Rice. They argued that C-40 would help protect Montanans from "unsightly and devastating" weeds throughout the state and would be an economic boost to the state's agricultural industry. They also ensured voters that the amendment would not require any new taxes since it is only a protective measure to prevent raiding of the trust fund by the legislature during tight budgetary times.
No opponent committee was formed for C-40.
