GOP lawmakers defend work on public health budget

Some House Republicans on Tuesday defended their party’s work on the public health and human services budget for the next two years and offered cost-saving ideas to ensure more is spent on critical human services for the elderly, disabled and children.


At a press conference, House Majority Leader Ron Ehli, R-Hamilton, said Republicans wanted to “change the conversation” and help put money where Montanans need it the most in that budget.


“Today’s message is going to be more about helping Montanans at the levels where they need it the most,” Ehli said.
