Montana Legislature Adjourns Sin Die
The Montana Legislature adjourned sine die May 2, after a surprising motion from Senate Minority Leader Pat Flowers leading to an impromptu close of the contentious 2023 session.
The House, playing catch up to the Senate’s sudden adjournment, was able to pass both of the session’s marque bills.
House Bill 2, the state’s $13.4 billion budget bill, and House Bill 816, an income and property tax rebate bill.
This does affect lobbyist reporting. The principal end of session report is due June 1.
