Bipartisan Package Secures $3.3 Million For Montana Ports

The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act introduced by U.S. Senator Jon Tester secured $3,343,149.60 for critical infrastructure upgrades and repairs to several Montana land ports of entry along the northern border, according to an Aug. 8 press release.

“Montanans rely on our land ports of entry for everything from trade to travel, and they’ve long been in need of an upgrade,” said Tester. “Through my bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, we’ll be able to modernize our land ports to ensure that they’re safe, secure, and able to support the Montana small businesses that rely on cross-border commerce.”

In total, $3.85 billion was secured for ports of entry through his bipartisan IIJA. The $3.3 million secured for Montana’s land ports of entry will be used for road repairs, generator replacements, water system repairs, and more at ports across the state. Tester worked across the aisle for months to negotiate his bipartisan package with a group of five Republicans, four Democrats, and the White House and he was the only member of Montana’s congressional delegation to vote for it.
