Governor Bullock Announces Support for Badger-Two Medicine Protection Act, Calls on Daines to Co-Sponsor Bill

July 23, 2020

Helena, Mont. – Today, Governor Steve Bullock announced his support for permanent protections for the Badger-Two Medicine through the Badger-Two Medicine Protection Act that Senator Jon Tester introduced earlier this week:

“The Badger-Two Medicine is sacred land for the Blackfeet nation, and we shouldn’t tolerate any further attempts by corporate out-of-state interests to exploit this special place. Our leaders in Washington should act on the Badger-Two Medicine Protection Act as soon as possible. That’s why I’m calling on Senator Steve Daines to join Senator Jon Tester in backing this legislation to permanently protect the Badger-Two Medicine, give the Blackfeet people a voice in managing this culturally important area, and ensure this unique landscape is around for future generations to enjoy.”
