Business in Montana
Nearly 100 people representing businesses went to Helena to voice their concerns about job growth, business health, and other aspects involving the state and business.
“This is the first time we’ve tried this,” Senate President Jim Peterson said in his opening remarks to one group.
“Everyone in the Legislature realizes the importance of jobs in this state,” Peterson said.
During the meeting, Peterson encouraged audience members to testify on the challenges of doing business in Montana.
Vincent organized the event and said the listening session a success.
“A lot of people drove a long way just to talk for seven minutes,” he said.
Vincent also said there were lessons to be learned from the business representatives' testimonies.
“We need to have a business atmosphere conducive for producing certainty for venture capitalists,” Vincent said. “Those that take the risk for job creation need a business environment with enough certainty to take risks.”
He said the event early enough in the session that lawmakers would have time to have some “bills dropped into the hopper” to address issues mentioned.
