Session Housing for Legislators Needed

Monday, August 1, 2016/Categories: Legislative Branch/Tags: Montana Legislative Session

The 65th regular session of the Montana Legislature convenes on January 2, 2017. Lawmakers are already looking for places to call home while they're here.

During legislative sessions, which take place every odd-numbered year, almost 150 legislators become short-term residents of Helena in need of housing from January through April. The Legislative Services Division (LSD) is compiling a database of rental properties available during the session. Legislators are interested in properties anywhere within the Helena area. Suitable rentals include rooms, houses, apartments, condominiums, mobile homes, motels, and bed and breakfast inns.

While LSD will provide the information to lawmakers who request it, we will not play a role in transactions between legislators and property owners.

A form to specify the accommodations that you are offering is available on the Legislative Branch website at Property owners may submit the form online by following the listed instructions, dropping the form off at LSD at the State Capitol, 1st floor east end reception area, or mailing it to Courtney Cannon, Legislative Services Division, PO Box 201706, Helena, MT 59620-1706.

If you have questions or would like more information, contact Courtney Cannon, Legislative Services Division, at 406-444-3064 or
