A Montana lawmaker is proposing the state establish a task force to protect and expand military missions in the state. The sponsor of House Bill 579 is State Rep. Roger Hagan, who represents Great Falls, the home of Malmstrom Air Force Base. Other states already have created task forces, and Montana’s lack of one could hurt the state in the event of a BRAC round, according to the bill. The House State Administration Committee has not yet voted on the legislation, reported the Billings Gazette.
