Efficiency Committee Hears Rural Concerns

The Select Committee on Efficiency in Government met in Havre in June, approving three committee bill drafts and continuing its efforts to gather ideas from local officials about ways to improve state government.

During its two-day meeting, the committee heard from area officials on several topics.

Rep. Scott Reichner moderated a panel on “Local Interests and State Government Efficiency Intersects.” In general, the speakers advocated enhanced communication from state agencies with local governmental entities, contractors, and vendors. They also suggested additional state funding should be authorized for local projects or as reimbursement to contractors and vendors. Panelists were: Paul Tuss, executive director of the Bear Paw Development Corp.; Hill County Commissioner Kathy Bessette; Havre Mayor Tim Solomon; David C. Henry, President/CEO of Northern Montana Health Care; and Mary Heller, general manager of the North Central Regional Water System.
