Governor Schweitzer’s Problem With The Budget Bill
Governor Brian Schweitzer met with Senate president Jim Peterson, and House Speaker Mike Milburn, a day after he received the Republican Majority’s budget bill. Peterson is pleased with the budget the legislature has passed. Schweitzer has said he is likely to either veto the bill, or rewrite it, and send it back for their consideration. Governor Schweitzer is telling Republican Legislative leaders that the biggest problem he has with their budget is the way it abandons federal money for Montana social programs.
