Montana Coordination Act of 2011
(Currently LC0711)

Submitted by

Senator Greg Hinkle (SD7)

 

Introduction

Federal statutes mandate federal agencies to “coordinate” with local government in developing and implementing plans, policies and management actions.  The agencies are directed to use every practicable means to make federal and state plans, policies and management actions “consistent”, not in conflict.
Many state statutes also direct that state agencies coordinate with local government in pursuit of the same goal of consistency.  Montana is no exception.

States are now beginning to enact legislation to require state agencies to coordinate with local government units.  The State of Arizona is one example.  The American Legislative Exchange Council supports a model statute patterned on the Arizona statute. ...

... Conclusions

Now is the time for the legislature to act to strengthen Montana’s use of and participation in the lawful use of the principles of coordination.  A bill is being drafted (LC0711) which will do just that – give local governments  clear direction in their use of coordination to fairly represent the citizens of their jurisdictions in bringing back local control from runaway big governments.

This will not create bureaucratic burdens on local government as some have suggested.  On the contrary, experience has shown that the proper use of coordination processes relieves burdens imposed by special interest groups and their constant harassment by lawsuits which result in getting citizens off the land, away from any productive use of natural resources, and which promote risks to life and property.

It’s time to do what is right for the citizens of Montana before too many of them have completely exhausted their ability to survive.  They cannot survive without jobs and the jobs come from sustainable use of Montana’s abundant land-based natural resources.  ...<snip>...

Subject: FW: SB # 117 - YOUR HELP needed to provide WRITTEN TESTIMONY


SB 117 - MONTANA COORDINATION ACT OF 2011

Attached is a form ready for you to print, fill out and get additional signatures from your friends, family or neighbors.  You can -

This MONTANA COORDINATION ACT of 2011, SB 117, is scheduled for Senate 'Local Government Committee' Hearing on Monday, January 17, 2011. 

 

When adopted, Coordination puts local and Federal governments on an equal negotiation basis.  No longer will federal agencies be able to close roads, prevent harvesting our forests or place wolves in our state without our consent.  Coordination would put Montanans back to work and encourage the use of our national resources.

We sincerely hope you will make every effort to support this bill by taking the necessary actions as outlined above.  Let there be not doubt that your vote is going to be extremely important.  We must fight for Montana; we must fight to increase jobs and make use of our own natural resources.
