Tester visits Pasta Montana in Great Falls


by Jen Fenter

Newly re-elected U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) visited Great Falls on Monday, learning more about the structure of several Montana businesses.

Tester toured Pasta Montana during his Great Falls stop.

Tester says small businesses create jobs in the state, and he hopes to gain insight on Montana’s needs and see if there is anything that can be done on the federal level to help.

He noted, “I think any time you talk about the challenges of businesses, if you’re there to see what those challenges are first-hand, you can relay them a lot easier. And that’s what this is about.”

Tester says businesses such as Pasta Montana are adding value to grain and creating more jobs.
