HB-326, Dan Kennedy R-Laurel: “A BILL FOR AN ACT ENTITLED: “AN ACT REPEALING THE LAWS AUTHORIZING THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MONTANA THROUGH A STATEWIDE VOTE TO APPROVE OR REJECT A PROPOSED NUCLEAR POWER FACILITY…” Another of the brilliant pieces of legislation proposed for the captains of industry by the Montana GOP this session.

75-20-1201. Purpose — findings as to nuclear safety — reservation of nuclear facility approval powers to the people.
