    Tell your State Senator to Vote NO on HB201, SB 387, and SB 389

    The Montana legislature is considering House Bill 201; an unnecessary change to Montana’s prevailing wage laws which will lower wages and kill jobs. Montana’s prevailing wage law ensures that workers in construction and building trades receive fair wages and are compensated when they are required to travel for a job.

    HB 201 changes how prevailing wage rates and travel allowances are calculated, and will result in reduced pay. With aging infrastructure, and repair and replacement needs growing all across Montana, good-paying construction jobs need to be protected, not put at risk like HB 201 would do. This bill is unnecessary and will lead to lower-quality work and a weaker economy for Montana.

    Politicians in Montana have introduced two bills - SB387 and SB389 - that will cause damage to the public retirement system. These bills will create uncertainty and cost more while providing less benefit.

    If passed, these bills will:

    • Create uncertainty and chaos. These bills will drain Montana’s public pensions, destabilize the system, and make it impossible for workers to plan for retirement.
    • Be Costly. SB 387 and SB389 don't add up. They increase the cost of benefits but decrease the benefits paid out to workers, putting the entire system at risk.
    • Hurt retention. If these two bills are passed, employees will be incentivized to leave their jobs, taking their experience and skills with them. At a time when we are trying to attract and retain public employees, this is the opposite of what we want to do
