Tester Statement on State of the Union Address

Senator: I Will Work with the President When I Can and Hold Him Accountable When His Policies Hurt Montana

(U.S. Senate)-U.S. Senator Jon Tester issued the following statement at the conclusion of President Trump’s first State of the Union address:

“I heard strong things from the President tonight that spoke to Montana’s hardworking families. I look forward to working with him to upgrade our infrastructure, secure our borders, boost access to better jobs, and improve care for our veterans. I’m concerned the President did not once mention our state’s top industries, so I’ll hold him accountable to address the issues facing family farmers and ranchers, and to protect our public lands. I have always said that I will work with the President when I can and hold him accountable when his policies hurt Montana.”

Tester hosted National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, of Malta, as his State of the Union guest.
