    SB 130 Montana Home Guard

    SB 130 has been introduced by Sen. Roger Webb. This is MSSA's bill to flesh out the Montana Home Guard, to create an all-volunteer organization much like volunteer fire departments but with a much broader range of mission, and available to the governor or county sheriffs only for in-state service. SB 130 has been assigned to the Senate State Administration Committee with no public hearing date set yet. This bill should be on your Preference List on the Legislature's Website.

    Exclamation SB 130 Home Guard HEARING THIS MONDAY 1/26

    SB 130 Bill text, current status and general info: http://www.mtssa.org/?page_id=180

    Dear MSSA Friends,

    The public hearing on MSSAís bill to refurbish the Home Guard, SB 130, will held next Monday, January 26th, at 3PM, before the Senate State Administration Committee in Capitol Room 335.

    Be there to speak for the bill if you can. If you canít, be sure to send messages to committee members asking them to support SB 130. You can send a message to all members of the Senate State Admin Committee from the Legislatureís Online message form at:
    http://www.leg.mt.gov/css/Sessions/6...webmessage.asp

    Keep your message brief, please.

    SB 130 would expand upon existing laws establishing the Montana Home Guard to specify organization, mission, duties, responsibilities and control. Under SB 130, the Home Guard would be an all-volunteer entity, with specialized companies or platoons that might specialize in medical, forestry, environmental remediation, construction, transportation, communication, or other specialized services. The Home Guard would become a statewide volunteer effort like volunteer fire departments or Neighborhood Watch, but with a different, broader, and more varied mission.

    If you have any questions about what SB 130 would accomplish or how it would work, read the bill (linked above).

    I hope to see you on Monday at 3PM at the Capitol. If you canít be there, please send messages to Committee members.

    I think this was the 3rd time the Montana Homeguard Bill was shot down. Well, Strike 3 and you're out.

    Now it's my turn.

    I am forming the Montana Homeguard as a membership organization. If you are interested in the details of how it will be structured and operated, please contact me at usa1_59102@yahoo.com
