The Montana Legislature’s Transportation Interim Committee (TIC) meets July 9 to begin charting its course for the 2019-20 interim.
The organizational meeting begins at 9 a.m. in room 137 of the state Capitol.
The 2019 Legislature passed and approved Senate Bill No. 226 establishing a Transportation Interim Committee. Historically, transportation matters were combined with revenue and tax policy and under the authority of the Revenue and Transportation Interim Committee. The TIC will maintain oversight of programs and rulemaking activities of the Montana Department of Transportation (MDT) and the Motor Vehicle Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ MVD).
During the July 9 meeting, committee members will discuss their work for the interim and elect a presiding officer and vice-presiding officer.
Senate members appointed to the committee are Carlie Boland, D-Great Falls; Diane Sands, D-Missoula; Gordon Vance, R-Belgrade; and Jeff Welborn, R-Dillon. House members appointed to the committee are Ross Fitzgerald, R-Fairfield; Denley Loge, R-Saint Regis; Andrea Olsen, D-Missoula; and Mark Sweeney, D-Philipsburg.
The meeting will be live-streamed at https://www.leg.mt.gov/ and will be broadcast on the Montana Public Affairs Network (MPAN).
