Main Street Montana Project Reveals Business Plan

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Governor Steve Bullock revealed a business plan for Montana. The plan was developed through Bullock's Main Street Montana project.

The project's co-chairs and Bullock talked about the five pillars for economic growth in the plan: train and educate tomorrow's workforce, create a climate that attracts and grows businesses, build on the state's economic foundation, market Montana, and nurture emerging industries.

Bullock says some of the issues in our region that need attention are to make sure we have trained workers and to address infrastructure needs.

"Now like any business plan, you start out," he said. "You write it and you say well here are some modifications that might be needed. Here's where else we need to go. And I expect us to do that but I do really expect that this isn't going to be a report that we just write and toss aside. It's going to be a continuing process."

The Governor signed an executive order directing agencies to help implement the plan. It highlights a list of tasks for agencies to complete. For the full report, click on connections.
