Montana State Advocacy
Hello, MHIMA members! As you know, the Montana Legislature meets biennially and is currently in session. Although the session got off to a slow start, many bills are making their way through the process. As your MHIMA Legislative/Advocacy Chair, I have been monitoring bills that may be of interest to our members and have summarized those bills below. Please note this summary includes only bills that have been introduced – not those in a draft, unintroduced status (statuses current as of 3/15/2021).
The bills listed in blue font at the bottom of this list are most likely ‘dead’ bills, although there is still a chance they could be revived.
If you wish to listen to or participate in any of the upcoming hearings, you can find information on how to do so here.
If you would like to view the text of any of these bills or any other bill details, you may do so here
You will click on Look Up Bills and, using the Bill Search tool, type in the Bill Type and Number and click Find. You will then see the bill information.
