One Montana election issue akin to the sulfide mining worry in the northern Minnesota Boundary Waters neighborhood.
For Minnesotans and others viewing public lands debate in Montana during the special election ramp-up; this websearch, hat tip to here, where Crabgrass first took notice. It appears late Obama presidency trending was to protect public lands adjacent to or near Yellowstone Park via a mining and mineral extraction lease ban. Now the appearance is that legislation would be needed given a current presidential disinclination to protect public lands. The linked "first notice" item links here, to this letter from Senator Tester to the administration.
