Brian Schweitzer on Environment

Democratic MT Governor

 


2007: Signed three bills encouraging local food production

In 2005, a small group of folks creating a coalition began a fledgling effort to bring together people interested in food production, sale, and sustainability called Grow Montana. Here are some examples of its highly successful 2007 legislative session: Each of the 3 bills passed almost unanimously and was signed by Governor Brian Schweitzer (a farmer himself!).

Limit cattle grazing near Yellowstone as disease safeguard

The buffalo and elk in Yellowstone often carry brucellosis. Having park buffalo mingle with domestic cattle could potentially threaten the cattle with infection. Part of Schweitzer's solution included pulling back some of the cattle that craze on the boundary of the park, creating a buffer zone.
