MTN News provided comprehensive coverage of the 66th Legislature and the aftermath of the session.

In this week’s installment of Face the State, MTN Chief Political Reporter Mike Dennison takes a deeper dive into the results, and politics, of the session.

He’s joined by two legislative leaders, one from each party: Republican Senate President Scott Sales, of Bozeman, and Democratic House Minority Leader Casey Schreiner, of Great Falls.

Sales and Schreiner give their takes on the outcome of the session – wherein majority Republicans and minority Democrats are each claiming some significant victories.

The trio also discusses the split in the Republican Party that played a big role this session, as well as Medicaid expansion to sports gambling.

Face the State airs every Sunday at 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on all MTN stations.
