Montana House Bill HB49 Could Create Stricter Seat Belt Laws – Poll: Should This Be Law?

NBCMONTANA – House bill could create more strict seat belt laws.

The Montana State House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on a seat belt safety bill on Monday. The bill, introduced by Rep. Frank Garner (R) of Kalispell, would create a vehicle occupant safety pilot program. It would make driving without a seat belt a primary and citable offense.

“Montana right now has a secondary seat belt law, that means you can only be cited if you’ve been stopped for another offense,” said Garner. “The purpose of this one is to try to show the primary seat belt law will increase the number of people wearing seat belts and will save lives.”

According to the Montana Department of Transportation, two-thirds of vehicle occupants who died in a crash in 2017 were not wearing a seat belt. That is 84 people.

If passed, the new bill would allow any driver to be stopped for not wearing a seat belt. Each passenger of the vehicle would be required to buckle up as well. “The focus of this is education. Trying to get people to wear their seat belts, make sure they understand that increasing Montanans’ occupant safety is paramount,” said Garner. There have been attempts to create a primary seat belt law in Montana in the past, but none have been successful. Garner says this bill would be different because it is focused on seat belt education. It is also a pilot program which expires in four years. At the end of those four years it would be up to the legislature to decide whether to continue with the law.

The hearing takes place at on Monday at 8 a.m. Garner says the House could take action on the bill by the end of the week. Be sure to contact your representatives giving them your support or opposition to this bill!

Member Only Poll: Should Montana Implement an Electoral College System for State Elections?

What if we used an Electoral College type system to elect State Representatives for Congress as well as for Gubernatorial races?

Would we have our current Governor and State Representation in Montana? Would rural Montanans be better represented? Our current election system in Montana is based on popular vote or as some may say “Mob Rule”. Larger cities like Billings, Missoula, Great Falls, Bozeman and Butte dictate to us who our representatives will be. What do you think? Is this a silly idea? Is popular vote fair for Montana elections? Of course it would take nearly an act of God to do this and I have no idea where to even start. Lets have the discussion as a starting point.

If you thought Facebook blocked a lot of people now, wait til Zuckerberg runs for President!

According to CNBC, Mark Zuckerberg might be planning a run for president in 2020! People like me and Facebook pages like ours with a lot of followers and a lot of “influence” according to them, already get blocked for not leaning politically left. Just imagine how bad it will be when he needs to silence his political opponents! Precisely why we’ve built this alternative to Facebook website! JOIN if you haven’t already and engage below!

CNBC.com – More signs point to Mark Zuckerberg possibly running for president in 2020.

There’s increasing speculation that Mark Zuckerberg, the self-made billionaire chairman, co-founder and chief executive officer of Facebook, may one day run for office. And though it’s unclear that he will make a bid for to be the next U.S. President in 2020, he could certainly afford it.
The clues

According to Politico, some of the signs that he does plan to run are there.

Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have hired Joel Benenson, a Democratic pollster, adviser to former President Barack Obama and chief strategist of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, as a consultant for their joint philanthropic project, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

The pair also hired David Plouffe, campaign manager for Obama’s 2008 presidential run; Amy Dudley, former communications adviser for Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va.; and Ken Mehlman, who directed President George W. Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign.

Zuckerberg is on a yearlong “listening tour,” where he is traveling to all 50 states and meeting with leaders and constituents in each — and, to document the trip, he has hired Charles Ommanney, a photographer for both the Bush and Obama presidential campaigns.

The denials

Zuckerberg denies that he has presidential aspirations. He wrote in a May 21 Facebook post, “Some of you have asked if this challenge means I’m running for public office. I’m not.” He said the same thing to BuzzFeed News in January.

But it sure looks like he might be. And he wouldn’t be the first politician to try to mislead the public.
The costs

If he does run, it would cost only about one percent of his net worth to match the amount spent on Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid of 2016, which some predicted at the time would be the most expensive ever.

Overall, the bill for last year’s presidential and congressional elections came to a record $6.5 billion, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. The presidential race alone cost $2.4 billion. Of that, Clinton’s campaign spent $768 million and Donald Trump’s spent $398 million.

Zuckerberg’s net worth, made mostly through Facebook, is $71 billion as of Aug. 14, according to Forbes. That makes him one of the richest people in the world.

It’s hard to know exactly how much a presidential campaign could cost Zuckerberg. That would depend on how much he would shell out himself and how much he could collect from super PAC contributions and donations from supporters, as well as the price of advertising, travel, housing and staffing. However, the 2016 race could provide a template.

Deadlines vary by state on when a presidential candidate must declare their candidacy, but there are 1,175 days until ballots are cast in 2020, and according to CNBC calculations, Zuckerberg, so far, has made $4.4 million for every day he’s been alive.

The issues

He hasn’t revealed any kind of political platform, but the CEO has spoken in favor of a universal basic income.

The idea, whichZuckerberg discussed in Alaska during his listening tour, would guarantee citizens a set income regardless of age, class, job status and other criteria.

Supporters of the idea, like Elon Musk, say a basic income could be especially necessary as automation could replace lower-skilled jobs. Critics, however, say it does not address larger economic issues and, regardless, would be impossible to institute on a grand scale.

Zuckerberg also raised the idea during his May 25 Harvard commencement speech. “We should have a society that measures progress not just by economic metrics like [gross domestic product], but by how many of us have a role we find meaningful,” Zuckerberg told graduates. “We should explore ideas like universal basic income to give everyone a cushion to try new things.”
