Montana Pro Gun Legislative Issues “Preference List”

Montana Pro Gun Legislative Issues “Preference List”

Washington, DC –-( Last Friday I authored an article with the Subject line of “Montanans Getting Ready With 20 Pro Gun Bills Introduced.”

In that article, I included a link to an explanation of the legislative process, how to track bills, and how to contact legislators.

In that link, I mention that it is possible for you to create a “Preference List” on the legislature’s Website. On this Preference List, you can include all the bills you want to track, so when you go to the Legislature’s Website to check on bills you only have to go to one place, your personal Preference List, rather than checking on every individual bill of interest. Plus, the system will send you a notification email when the status of an item on your Preference List changes. It’s a great tool.

Of course, I will be sending email alerts to the folks on the email list when you need to know about an upcoming event for a bill. I only hope I can keep up with the rush.

You can go to the Legislature’s Website now and set up you personal Preference List for the upcoming legislative session, if you wish. Use the link to the Legislative Process in my article from Friday. When you follow that link, you will find another link to get to the Legislature’s Website to create your Preference List.

Since these measures don’t have bill numbers yet (the Legislature has not yet convened), you will need to add all the MSSA Legislative Agenda items to your Preference List using the LC# I have provided with each measure (now in bill drafting). Those LC#s are listed with the various measures at the link I provided. The bill numbers will show up on your preference list as each of these measures is introduced and assigned a bill number, after the session convenes.

However, to make it easier, let me give you the list of LC#s here. You will have to add these to your Preference List (if you want to set one up) one at a time. Here are the LC#s I have so far for MSSA coming bills:

  • 0030
  • 0048
  • 0062
  • 0458
  • 0459
  • 7000
  • 0702
  • 0703
  • 0704
  • 0706
  • 0707
  • 0708
  • 0709
  • 0710
  • 1058
  • 1717

I’ll have more LC#s soon, as bill draft requests are submitted by legislators.
