Republican Legislators Put Political Agenda Ahead of Montana Jobs

SERIES: The MTGOP’s Misplaced Priorities

The Montana Democratic Party today continued “The MTGOP’s Misplaced Priorities” campaign highlighting Republican Legislators’ focus on backward legislation that benefits their political agenda, ahead of legislation that promotes job creation or strengthens our economy.

Today’s example is SB 282, a bill from Sen. Albert Olszewski (R-Kalispell) that restricts a woman’s right to make her own personal healthcare decisions.

Montanans don’t want politicians like Sen. Olszewski making their healthcare decisions for them. Personal healthcare matters should be kept between a woman and her doctor, her family, and her faith.
Sen. Olszewski’s bill is just another unnecessary Republican attack on women’s health instead of focusing on creating high-wage jobs and growing Montana’s economy.
Is this what Montanans voted for?
