On this 2016 Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Governor Steve Bullock visited Bozeman to announce an executive order expanding the prohibition of discrimination of Montana state employees and contractors to include LGBT people, pregnant and child bearing women and military veterans.

“Today we remember and honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and recommit to the values and principles he fought for every day – compassion, acceptance, and equality,” said Governor Bullock. “I am honored to stand up for all Montanans to ensure that no one is denied full and equal participation in our state’s workforce based on discrimination and intolerance.”


Today, Montana became just a little better Last Best Place.

Contrary to what many of those self-appointed Montana constitutional scholars that called in during the Bozeman Non-Discrimination Ordinance debate said, protection of these specific classes of people were not protected, until today at Wild Joe's Coffee. Please remember, those self-appointed Montana constitutional scholars -- the ones that do SO much research so you and I can understand the issues better -- generally make things up to fit their personal political narrative.
