What gives, Rick Hill? Former Congressman Rick Hill says he supports our right to hunt and fish, but actions speak louder than words.

If Rick Hill had his way, Montanans would sacrifice their favorite places to fish, hunt and camp. He voted against state grants in the Land and Water Conservation Fund, a critical funding source for Montana’s state parks and river access sites. He consistently voted against proposals to protect our best places to hunt, fish, hike and ride horses. He also voted against common-sense limits on arsenic in drinking water. That is not the type of leadership we need in a governor.
Rick Hill obviously doesn’t get it. Montanans value time and places to get away from it all and enjoy clean wide open places, our wild country. Hill should not be elected governor.
