Ryan Zinke on Government Reform
Q: Do you support the current limit of terms for Montana state senators and representatives?
Q: Do you support limiting the following types of contributions to state legislative candidates? Individual?
Q: Political Parties?
Q: Do you support requiring full and timely disclosure of campaign finance information?
Q: Do you support imposing spending limits on state-level political campaigns?
Q: Should Montana participate in the federal REAL ID program?
A: I support the requirement for a valid Montana ID for all elections.
Zinke described his three broad goals if he is confirmed: "The first is to restore trust by working with rather than against local communities and states. I fully recognize that there is distrust, anger, and even hatred against some federal management policies. Being a listening advocate rather than a deaf adversary is a good start. Second, is to prioritize the estimated $12.5 billion in backlog of maintenance and repair in our National Parks. The President elect is committed to a jobs and infrastructure bill, and I am going to need your help in making sure that bill includes shoring up our Nation's treasures. And third, to ensure the professionals on the front line, our rangers and field managers, have the right tools, right resources, and flexibility to make the right decisions that give a voice to the people they serve."
