Last session, I voted to decrease the state income tax rate. Unfortunately, every Democrat in Montana voted against the bill. Yet, the bill was still signed by the Governor and supported by a majority of Montanans. We need to increase workers income by lowering what they pay to the government. Economic growth will provide adequate revenue to fund limited, effective, and efficient government. Taxes should be low, simple, flat, and free of loopholes. Tax policies should favor savings, investment, job creation, and economic growth.
We need to stop all government subsidies for wind and solar. These have limited competition, and picked winners and losers. Subsidies for intermittent power have exposed seniors and the middle class to unreliable, high cost energy. We must expand mining for Montana coal and fight for resources like hydropower, which are in jeopardy because of the unconstitutional CSKT Water Compact.
RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS
I am an A-rated and endorsed by the NRA. Our 2nd Amendment is one of the most paramount and cherished rights enjoyed by all Americans. The radical left continues to assault our right to bear arms seeking to infringe on the 2nd Amendment in any way they can. I will continue to fight these attempts every step of the way. The 2nd Amendment must be defended and I'm happy to stand on my long-held record of defending this constitutional freedom.
Montana's public lands are second to none. I grew up in Montana hiking, fishing, and hunting on Montana's public lands. I know we have to keep our special places special for future generations. As your Representative, I will continue to ensure our public lands are accessible and stay in public hands.
CUT GOVT. BLOAT
For decades our state agencies have become bloated while not serving taxpayers any better. They have largely been immune to cornavirus impacts, while the private sector has suffered, and had to make incredible sacrifices. The political establishment considers cutting the fat from government a difficult choice. I know it is not and support making the necessary and feasible cuts that provide taxpayers a better value and hold unelected bureaucrats accountable.
A free and fair system of elections is our birthright as Americans. The strength of our Republic rests in our ability to elect out representatives and be confident that our votes are actually counted. We must act now to secure our elections, or else all the strife and effort our predecessors did would be lost. I support efforts to make voting easy and cheating hard. These include, voter identification, signature verification, chain of custody controls, bipartisan election observers, clean voter tools, and absentee ballot harvesting bans.
BACK THE BLUE
Liberal democrats are putting families at risk by pushing to defund the police across Montana and across the country. I support the Flathead County Sheriff's Department and the Columbia Falls Police Department. I will fight against the anti-police agenda being pushed by Montana Democrats and left-wing groups, and will work to protect our law enforcement from being defunded.
STOP DARK MONEY
Out of state elites and dark money environmental groups have made it their mission to kill all natural resource jobs in Montana. Industries like timber and mining are what Montana is built on. We need to close loopholes on dark money groups and fight to make our state the best state to responsibly harvest timber and mine minerals that make us the envy of the world.
