Subscribe to KMMS 1450 AM on

Montana Senator Steve Daines is unabashedly proud of the upcoming Montana Energy 2016 conference in Billings at the end of March.

Daines describes the conference as the future of Montana, and the future of being energy producers.

“I really believe that Montana is uniquely positioned to produce an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy portfolio,” Daines said. “Certainly, we have the renewables, hydro, wind and solar. We have more recoverable coal than any state in the nation, as well as oil and natural gas. However, with the attacks by the Obama administration and the EPA power grab, along with the fact that they killed the Keystone XL pipeline, and now they’re working to kill coal.”

Daines went on to highlight the importance of coal to Montana’s economy.

“51 percent of our electricity comes from coal, along with $140 million in tax revenues that go to our teachers, our schools and our infrastructure,” he continued. “Coal brings 7,000 union and tribal jobs, so we need to make sure we have a good, balanced outlook moving forward.”

Speakers at the conference will include CEO and Chairman of Conoco/Phillips, Ryan Lance, Executive Chairman of BNSF Railway, Matt Rose, along with Montana Public Service Commissioner Travis Kavulla, Senator Daines and Montana Attorney General Tim Fox.

The conference takes place March 30-31 at the Radisson Convention Center in Billings. Get details on the conference and how to register here.
