The Natural Resources Subcommittee of the Select Committee on Efficiency in Government is requesting specific recommendations for finding efficiencies related to state processes for natural resource development.

  • ways to use electronic forms and authorizations to streamline permitting;
  • new technologies that can help advance development of innovative natural resource industries and sectors needs;
  • requirements to facilitate investment and financing of natural resource development projects in Montana;
  • improvements to project and program coordination, both between state programs, and between state and other government programs;
  • improvements to public notice and opportunities for public participation; and
  • ways to further prevent or eliminate duplication and waste, in general.

Suggested changes can be submitted in the following ways:

  • by email to jmohr2@mt.gov
  • by filling out the online public input tool found on the Committee's website (leg.mt.gov/sceg); or
  • by mailing the recommendation to: Jason Mohr, Legislative Services Division, P.O. Box 201706, Helena, MT 59620
