We’re 111 days into the fiscal year, we still don't have a budget and this short-term, band-aid bill falls far short of what we need in Montana. #mtpol

The budget before us: - Puts community health centers on the brink of closure. - Doesn’t provide long-term funding for our military and national parks. - Fails to secure our borders.

We're 4 months into FY18 w/ no budget & now folks in Congress want to put off passing THIS YEAR’S budget for another month. Enough. I'm voting against another band-aid budget bill b/c if someone doesn't put their foot down we may never get a budget passed. https://t.co/Lw4NRr1bK0

These short-term, Band-Aid budget deals aren't acceptable and cost taxpayers money. Enough is enough. We need a long-term budget deal that works for Montana. #mtpol https://t.co/yS3e1wCJoU

Alex Diekmann was a champion for Montana. He'll be remembered for his contribution to conservation & Diekmann Peak will be a destination to celebrate our outdoor heritage. This was truly a bipartisan effort by the entire delegation. #mtpol @whitefishpilot https://t.co/Pf8iFrqBFq

My first @SenateCommerce hearing today was a doozy. Questioned folks from @facebook , @Twitter & @YouTube about what we can do to combat extremism & disinformation online. And because I’m the new kid on the Committee, I get the best seat in the house! https://t.co/bt3eQDH3Pr https://t.co/fm2DwlKwuh

I recently met w/ folks from Leadership Billings, a nonpartisan group of local business professionals making a big impact on our economy & community. These folks make up Main Street Montana, so I was excited to get their feedback on the biggest issues facing MT businesses. #mtpol https://t.co/jkZ5iZwxGw
