Gianforte Appoints Three To Commission
Gov. Greg Gianforte has announced three nominations to the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission.
Ravalli County Commissioner Jeff Burrows, campground owner Susan Kirby Brooke of Bozeman and Dodson area rancher Lesley Robinson were appointed by Gianforte to serve on the seven- member commission. The appointees will face hearings and a final vote of the Montana Senate to be officially confirmed.
Robinson has chaired the commission for the last two years. She previously served as a Phillips County commissioner and as the vice president of the Montana Stockgrowers Association.
The commission has final say over major Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks decisions including hunting, trapping and fishing regulations and wildlife transplants. It also may advance land purchases and conservation easements to the state Land Board.
