My opponent, Sen. Richmond, asked that a special committee be formed to implement his Green New Deal for Montana. Basically Richmond’s Green New Deal took a bill from committee and tried to amend in that Colstrip would be shut down in ten years and Montana would be run on wind mills. The cost of Tom’s amendments to HB 22 and the conversion necessary would have been about $3B; without benefit to NWE ratepayers. Richmond’s scheme would have collapsed large segments of our economy. His plan is so radical that even the most ardent environmentalist rejected his call for a meeting to implement it. See it here and tell me what you think!
