Gov. Greg Gianforte held a press conference Friday to give a recap of the Montana Legislature’s accomplishments in advancing the agenda its Republican leadership shares with his administration, in the wake of Democratic leaders also discussing the session the previous day.
Gianforte said with Republicans in control of the Legislature and executive branch they’ve seized the opportunity to make the state more competitive compared to its neighbors by lowering taxes and increasing exemptions for businesses, especially on equipment taxes, as well as simplifying the state tax code.
