MT Lawmakers wrap up 2021 session

HELENA — Montana lawmakers wrapped up the 2021 regular session here Thursday – but not without a technical glitch, big delays on an aborted marijuana bill and some parting, partisan barbs.

The House and Senate adjourned a few minutes before 5 p.m., long after they had voted to approve the two major budget bills, including one that authorizes spending of some $2 billion in federal Covid-19 relief funds.
