“These are lifetime appointments, shaping our courts and protecting our Montana way of life for generations to come.

“We are supporting our veterans.

“And we are working to lower the cost of prescription drugs.

“We are prioritizing paid family leave which would help over 13,000 Montanans.

“President Trump isn’t afraid to put America first.

“We are securing our southern border and stopping the flow of Mexican meth devastating our Montana communities.

“We are giving our law enforcement the tools they need to protect Montana families.

“We are giving our troops the pay raises they deserve, and our military is stronger than ever.

“America is winning under President Trump.

“I applaud President Trump for delivering for Montanans and the American people, and I commend him for a strong State of the Union Address tonight.”
