Protecting Our Public Lands

Protecting Our Public Lands

Jon knows that our state’s public lands help drive our economy – with outdoor recreation generating nearly $6 billion for our state’s economy, and sustaining 64,000 jobs every year.

While Washington politicians attempt to transfer Montana’s public lands to the states or sell them off, he has fought to keep our public lands in public hands.

Jon has taken Montana-made ideas to write responsible legislation that would improve Montana’s public land and water. The Rocky Mountain Front Heritage Act and the North Fork Protection Act – landmark pieces of legislation drafted by Montanans and introduced by Jon to protect Montana’s iconic landscapes and access to public lands – were both signed into law.

Jon will continue to be an advocate for public access to public lands, ensuring hunting, fishing, and hiking opportunities for generations to come.
