Gray Wolf Impact Hearings

From: Denny Rehberg, Montana’s Congressman

Announcing Gray Wolf Impact Hearings

To be held in Dillon, Hamilton, Kalispell

October 5-6

News Release [here]:

After hearing from thousands of you over the past several weeks at listening sessions and through the internet, I recognize that the frustration is well past the boiling point and federal legislation is likely necessary. It’s time to start working toward a solution that works for Montanans, not just powerful out-of-state interest groups.

Be sure to RSVP on the right, and invite your friends. If you can’t attend, you can still provide comments, concerns and ideas on my website or through Facebook and Twitter. - Rep. Denny Rehberg
