    MONTANA'S FAILING INFRASTRUCTURE C - GRADE POINT AVERAGE REPORT CARD

    in Environment

    The Governor's Build Montana plan calls for a $200 million dollar investment of cash and bonds in 2017, to fund roads, bridges, water systems, and school improvements.
    Bullock is also proposing the creation of the Build Montana Trust, by using 75% of the revenue going into the state's Coal Tax Severance Fund, setting it aside for future infrastructure needs.
    It's the same mechanism that created the Treasure State Endowment Program and Rural Water Projects, two sub-trusts that will mature next year earning enough interest to fund projects in perpetuity.
    Bullock said addressing the state's crumbling infrastructure will be his number one legislative priority in 2017.
