Steve Bullock on Families & Children

 

 


Supports same-sex marriage in Montana

All three of Bullock's statewide victories were in presidential years that saw Montana's electoral votes go to the Republican at the top of the ticket. Bullock was also elected to lead the National Governors Association in 2018. Bullock has a simultaneously bipartisan and liberal reputation, courting Republicans with spending cuts while expanding Medicaid in Big Sky Country, raising the minimum wage, enacting campaign finance reform, defending abortion rights and supporting same-sex marriage.

Don't cut workers from Child and Family Services Division

It doesn't make sense to me that you have proposed to cut workers from our Child and Family Services Division--the people on the front lines of helping kids in harm's way; or that you would propose to slash the funding to community nursing homes, that care for those depending on our help.

It also doesn't make sense to me, or to most Montanans, that someone making $9 dollars an hour pays the same tax rate as someone making $250 dollars an hour--especially when the alternative is to cut vital services for our citizens. Increasing the top tax rate for any income over a half a million dollars, and other modest revenue proposals before you, are fair. I ask that you give them fair consideration--and then pass them.

Unemployment benefits to victims of domestic violence

Last year, Bullock sent three proposals to the state legislature to help address wage inequities, but only one of those bills made into law. That law extended unemployment insurance benefits to victims of domestic violence.

The legislature, however, voted down legislation that would have allowed workers to discuss salaries without repercussions from their employer.

Bullock wants employers to take a hard look at what they pay employees, and to make sure that women are being paid the same as men for comparable work. "When working women prosper, overall, families prosper," the governor said..
