Steve Bullock Prepares to Bring Own Style Montana Governor’s Office
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Gov.-elect Steve Bullock says he doesn't plan on making any big course corrections to the direction Gov. Brian Schweitzer has steered the state.
But Bullock says he will be bringing his own style to the post.
The Democrat has already met with Republican legislative leaders in hopes that partisan tensions don't flare up as frequently as they have in recent years. Bullock says he is willing to meet the GOP-led Legislature halfway on core budget and education issues.
But he is also cautioning GOP leaders that proposals he views as partisan or outlandish will be vetoed.
Bullock spent one term as attorney general, where priorities included efforts to crack down on drunken driving and to fight legal attacks on the state's campaign finance laws.
