Rosendale’s legislative record is self-serving

Print Article

Matt Rosendale, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat in Montana, is not very well known to many Montanans. However, he fortunately has a record in the Montana Legislature which voters should understand. Here are some of the bills which Mr. Rosendale, a land developer, sponsored in the 2011, 2013, and 2015 legislative sessions. Granted, Mr. Rosendale introduced other bills in each legislative session, however his sponsoring self-serving bills to limit land use regulations and assist the development community should give voters pause and concern.

Titles of his sponsored bills include and their disposition are as follows: Revised county interim zoning laws in 2011 was vetoed, revise zoning laws for sand and gravel in 2011 died, revise interim zoning laws in 2013 passed, revise zoning laws for sand and gravel operations in 2013 was vetoed, provide landlord comply with building code in place at original construction in 2013 died, establish the property fairness act in 2013 died, and renerally revise the subdivision laws related to lease or rent requirements in 2013 passed.

I question whether a person with such a self-serving legislative record is what Montanans need in the U.S. Senate. Sen. Jon Tester on the other hand has a legislative record of supporting agriculture, veterans, fair banking, Montana’s communities, and many other important and beneficial laws. Sen. Tester deserves re-election and Matt Rosendale needs questioning on his legislative record.
