Talking Points:

  • Plastic pollution is a problem in MT. Local governments should be allowed to address it as they see fit.

  • HB 413 is not just about plastic pollution – it’s about state vs. local control. Restoring local power will allow cities and towns to efficiently address novel issues in ways that are most beneficial for their communities.

  • Montanans are making their voices heard about their desire for more local power. The Cities of Bozeman and Missoula have both passed resolutions supporting HB 413. The City of Billings has also expressed its support. Many small businesses, individuals, and citizen groups from across the state have spoken up on this issue. It’s time for the State to listen to its residents.
