Government Transparency and Oversight

Having oversight and enforcement capabilities for government misappropriation of monies, failure to adhere to professional standards, and failure to perform duties is critical in ensuring that the public interest is upheld.  If elected Catherine Scott will push to ensure independent oversight boards are empowered to do their jobs to protect the public interest. 

Infrastructure

Infrastructure is a central component in growing Montana's economy and keeping Montanan's healthy.  If elected Catherine Scott will push to protect our drinking water, to upgrade systems for waste water, to upgrade the aging main power control, to expand broadband, to develop public transport, and to maintain adequate roadways. 

Public Lands
