Montana Gets Nearly $28 Million For Conservation

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Federal officials say wildlife and conservation programs in Montana will receive nearly $28 million this year.

The U.S. Department of the Interior says the money comes from excise taxes generated by the sale of sporting firearms, ammunition, archery equipment, fishing equipment and electric outboard boat motors. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is dividing $1.1 billion among states.

Federal officials announced last week the distribution that's part of the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program.
