Sportsmen Call on Montana Legislature
to Restore Vital Funding

April 2, 2015, MISSOULA, Mont.—The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Montana Wild Sheep Foundation, Ducks Unlimited and other Montana hunters and anglers call on the Montana Legislature to restore the spending authority of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP).

“This does not make sense,” said David Allen, RMEF president and CEO. “In essence, the Legislature is both jeopardizing crucial access and habitat funding while also turning its collective back on Montana’s sportsmen who have long fought for better access to public lands and improved wildlife conservation and management. It is sportsmen and women who funded these programs for the betterment of wildlife in the state.”

At issue are the cuts to some of Montana’s most productive and heavily-supported wildlife programs. On March 25, 2015, the House Appropriations Committee removed FWP’s spending authority for the following programs from HB 403, and the Montana House subsequently passed the measure:

  • Eliminated the Habitat Montana program appropriation of $10,668,000
  • Eliminated the Upland Game Bird program appropriation of $849,000
  • Eliminated the Big Horn Sheep Habitat program appropriation of $460,000
  • Eliminated the Fishing Access Site program appropriation of $345,000
  • Reduced the state special revenue appropriation for the Migratory Bird Program by $210,000 and restricted the use of the balance to prevent land acquisition
“The Habitat Montana program is critical because it protects crucial habitat including elk, deer and sheep winter range and migration corridors. It also expands and improves wildlife management areas,” said Allen. Read more...
