Governor sells out Montanans by nixing anti-foreign law bill

Print Article

In spite of the overwhelming support in the legislature and from citizens across Montana, our Governor chooses foreign law over Montana law. Governor Bullock is quoted as saying, “The intent of these bills is to target a particular religion and group of people for disfavored treatment.” Exactly how does this target anyone for ‘disfavored treatment’? He also said, “the measure would “upend our legal system and debase what we stand for as Montanans and Americans.”

Governor, I’m not sure what you stand for but I, and 90 percent of Montanans, stand for the Constitutions of Montana and the United States of America. That would be the Constitution you swore to uphold when you took the oath of office as our highest elected official. As a citizen of this great state, might I remind you of your oath which reads in part ““I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support, protect and defend the constitution of the United States, and the constitution of the state of Montana, and that I will discharge the duties of my office with fidelity (so help me God).”

Senate Bill 97 did not target any particular group or people. It was designed to affirm, without a shadow of a doubt, Montana laws for Montana courts. When you Sir, choose foreign law over the laws, you swore to uphold you deserve to be recalled from office.

Ed Kugler,

Big Arm
