Gov. Bullock welcomes western governors

Gov. Steve Bullock welcomed governors from across the West to Montana for the Western Governors’ Association annual meeting this week. As Chairman of the WGA, Governor Bullock is hosting his colleagues and guests, such as actor and anti-hunger activist Jeff Bridges in Whitefish, Mont.
 “It’s an honor to welcome my friends and colleagues to my home state of Montana,” said Gov. Bullock. “I am confident that as governors from both sides of the aisle, we can show the rest of the nation that when we work together in a bipartisan way, we can advance meaningful work to benefit the public good, on everything from trade to infrastructure and natural resource management.”
 Governors participated in public roundtables on critical issues facing the West. Gov.Bullock moderated a roundtable discussion of his central policy initiative, the Western Governors’ National Forest and Rangeland Management Initiative.
 “Responsibly managing our western forests and rangelands is a vexing concern for anyone who loves the West,” said Bullock. “From private landowners to conservation advocates to the agricultural and forest industries that provide jobs, food, and homes for our residents, we all want to see these landscapes sustainably managed.”
 Governors in attendance include WGA Vice Chair Dennis Daugaard (South Dakota), Matt Mead (Wyoming), Brian Sandoval (Nevada), Gary Herbert (Utah), David Ige (Hawaii), Doug Burgum (North Dakota), John Hickenlooper (Colorado), Butch Otter (Idaho), and Ralph Torres (Northern Mariana Islands).
