This week, Lee Newspapers is examining the records of Montana farmer Jon Tester and Congressman Dennis Rehberg.
Jon Tester puts Montana first in every decision he makes, and he effectively works with Republicans, Democrats and Independents to write and pass responsible policy. Every bill he writes stems from an idea or concern that comes directly from Montana.
The following is a partial list of bills and amendments either authored or co-written by Jon Tester that are now Public Law. Since 2007, Congress has often incorporated smaller legislation into larger bills, thus resulting in fewer “stand alone” bills being signed into law.
