Montana Business Leaders Reach Out to Senator Tester

Posted: Updated:

Business for Montana's Outdoors helps educate community leaders and policy makers about the importance of public lands as a selling point for businesses looking to move to Montana.  The group tells Senator Tester protecting public lands is a proven economic driver.  Not only do businesses relocate to Montana to be closer to outdoor recreation options, but Montana's economy benefits from the money spent on outdoor recreation activities, like hunting, fishing, and hiking.

Senator Jon Tester says, "This meeting is a great opportunity to hear directly from Montana business owners about the value of our public lands, clean water, clean air, and how it can help drive business and create jobs in Montana.  It's one of those assets we take for granted as Montanans, but it's incredibly important."

The connection between Montana's outdoors and a strong economy is why Senator Tester is holding his 13th Small Business Opportunity Workshop this Friday, in Bozeman.
