2023 Legislative Session adjourns; MLHA notes successes
The 68th Legislative Session adjourned the evening of Tuesday, May 2, on the 87th day of a potential 90-day session as allowed by the Montana Constitution. It was also seven days later than the Legislative Session in 2021. Overall, the 2023 Montana Legislature officially introduced 1,698 bills, a 23% increase from the 2021 session when they introduced 1,313 bills.
Numerous bills were approved to modify and reduce land use and zoning regulations to stimulate greater flexibility for new housing opportunities, as well as to change how covenants can be enforced and extinguished.
MLHA experienced a very successful legislative session. Thank you to all those MLHA members who participated at many levels in both helping us defeat bad legislation and supporting positive bills for the tourism industry. You rallied when needed and our voice was heard. A special thanks to the MLHA Legislative Committee, which met several times before and during the session to establish positions on bills and outline legislative strategies. While the 2023 session is in the books, the next Montana Regular Legislative Session has already been scheduled to begin on January 6, 2025.
