Tester statement on British Columbia/Montana agreement

(GREAT FALLS, Mont.) – Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement in response to the announcement of a Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation between British Columbia and the State of Montana:

“I just received this agreement and will take a hard look at everything in it.  But I’m always encouraged by good-faith efforts to work together to do right by Montanans—and the clean water, wildlife and mountains that make our state famous.
