Congressman Zinke knows that infrastructure is not solely an expense, it's an investment in Montana's future. Rep. Zinke believes the highway bill is one of those ‘must-do’ bills because it supports such a huge part of our state and national economies. If we’re going to strengthen Montana’s businesses, we need reliable roads and highways. These are same roads that carry coal workers to the Spring Creek Mine in Decker, connect tourists from across the country to our many public lands, and allow ag producers to ship their resources across the state.
