One of the pillars of the Governor’s plan was the use of 25 million dollars from the state’s land guarantee account. Hill believes the money in that account should be used for all Montanans, not just teachers and state workers.  The Governor points out the uniqueness of his plan, which, if passed, would make Montana the first State to solve the pension liability problem without raising taxes.

During the KGVO interview with Hill, he also expressed his plan to bring more federal land under state control.
