Gianforte signs bills funding $500M in infrastructure projects

Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte on Thursday signed into law a package of legislation containing more than $500 million to fund infrastructure projects across the state.

That’s mostly in addition to hundreds of millions of dollars that will be flowing into Montana from the federal American Relief Plan Act (ARPA). Most of that money was appropriated in separate legislation once lawmakers gained more clarity on the federal relief funds.
