Today is the deadline for action on Senate Bill 71, Montana's groundbreaking approach to lowering prescription drug costs. As we wait to hear whether or not SB 71 will become law, here's a recap of how we got here. THREAD:

From @K_Hought: "the data tied to the settlement will help reveal the pharmaceutical industry’s opaque operations in Montana"

We launched a massive research project and Drug Savings Initiative to get to the bottom of the problem. bozemandailychronicle.com/news/health/ph… #mtpol #mtleg
From the beginning, we knew industry lobbyists were going to fight us every step of the way.

From @hollykmichels: "The commissioner’s office is expecting opposition during the session from lobbyists in the industries it is targeting."

Montana Legislature HB 197 is IMO a misguided approach to a management issue. It would require surveillance software to record all keystrokes and mouse movements on govt contract work. #mtleg #mtpol leg.mt.gov/bills/2019/bil…
I will agree there has been abuse in state contracts of waste and horrible work but this is not the solution. Who will go back and review all of this? Will it reduce contractors willing to participate? @DanielZolnikov can you provide examples of helpful use in other states?
I am willing to work with #mtleg legislators on a better approach to tackling waste and bad project work if that is indeed the issue. This would be an excellent citizen task force item since we have great tech people here in the state to provide ideas. cc @MontanaHighTech

-#Montana’s 2018 U.S. Senate Race-
So what they are trying to tell us is of the 251,000 MT Republicans voted @GregForMontana for House: 16,000 voted for Democratic incumbent @SenatorTester over Republican challenger @MattForMontana (Rosendale)?
So an additional 4,000 Republicans didn’t vote for #Rosendale, #Tester or the #Independent candidate?! What is the likely hood the 20,000 Republicans voted for @GregForMontana but failed to vote for @MattForMontana in the most important mid-term ever?
Was it because @MattForMontana is from #Maryland & not #Montana? That can’t be the reason, because they voted for @GregForMontana , who's from #NewJersey.

#Montana @SenatorTester has campaigned as a "big hunting proponent," sending out mailers to voters that show him on his farm with his gun in hand. (1)
“As we gear up for hunting season, Montanans know that hunting isn’t just a sport – it feeds our families, and it creates lifelong memories with our kids and grandkids,” Tester says in the campaign flier. (2)
“Montanans are lucky to have some of the best access, longest seasons and greatest hunting in the world.” (3)
