  • Guest Editorial: Montana's Public Lands Should be Run by Montanans, Not D.C.

    U.S. Senator Steve Daines|Feb 7, 2024

    As a fifth-generation Montanan, I have fond memories with my Grandpa Daines of learning how to fish and hunt north of Big Timber, and my goal is to pass these traditions on to my own children and grandchildren. There is no better way to experience Montana than backpacking, hunting, hiking or fishing. I share this passion with many Montanans, which is why improving access to our public lands is such a high priority. That's why I introduced my "Montana Sportsmen Conservation Act." Montanans should determine what is best for our public lands, not... Full story

  • Guest Opinion: Southern Border is a National Security Risk

    U.S. Senator Steve Daines|Nov 22, 2023

    Montana is a northern border state with a southern border crisis. After visiting the southern border this fall, my third trip in five years, I can say with certainty that the catastrophe at our southern border is now a serious threat to our national security and the result of the failed policies of President Biden and congressional Democrats. The facts are frightening. The State Department designates four countries as state sponsors of terrorism: Cuba, Iran, North Korea and Syria. In October, nearly 1,400 people from these four countries... Full story

  • Guest Op-Ed: Canary in a Coal Mine

    U.S. Senator Steve Daines|Mar 29, 2023

    The views expressed in Op-Ed’s published in the Three Forks Voice are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect those of the publication. Over the past two years, Montanans watched the President's attack on oil, coal and natural gas bring our nation to the brink of an all-out energy emergency. Gas prices rose to more than $5 a gallon and many Montanans are worried about how to heat their homes without breaking the bank. We aren't the only country grappling with the effects of a leader who is unrealistic about our nation's domestic... Full story

  • Guest Editorial: Fighting for Montana Values


    With the holidays behind us and Congress gearing up for a new session, I look forward to continuing my mission fighting for our Montana way of life in Washington, D.C. Under President Biden and Democrat congressional leadership, Montanans are facing the highest inflation rate in three decades, driving up prices of everything from groceries to used cars. In addition, the wide-open southern border is allowing record amounts of fentanyl to devastate our communities, and the attacks on made in Montana and made in America energy are costing Montana... Full story

  • Guest Opinion: Bringing accountability and transparency to cattle markets

    U.S. Senator Steve Daines|Mar 2, 2022

    In Montana, cattle outnumber people by nearly three to one, so it's no wonder that Montana beef plays such a large role in our rich legacy of agriculture and our economy. Montana ranchers take pride in producing the best cattle and highest-quality beef in the world. The last thing they should have to worry about is getting a fair price for their product. I'm hearing concerns from hardworking Montana cattle producers who are struggling to compete with the four biggest packers who currently dominate the market. These large packers face...

  • Daines Op-Ed: Democrats' Federal Election Takeover Bill Undermines What Montanans Want

    U.S. Senator Steve Daines|Jan 26, 2022

    If there’s one thing Montanans are about, it’s common sense. We work hard, play by the rules and don’t like when Washington elites impose laws that go against what works for Montana. That’s why I fought against President Biden and the Democrats’ attempt to pass their partisan bill to enact a federal takeover of elections every step of the way—because what they were trying to do didn’t make sense, and it’s not what Montanans wanted. In Montana, thanks to the leadership of Governor Greg Gianforte and Secretary of State Christi...
