Steve Bullock, a lifelong resident of Montana, has dedicated his career to fighting for Montana workers, students and families. He shares our Montana values and the grit that UAW members bring to the job each day.
WHY VOTE BULLOCK FOR SENATE?
STEVE ADVOCATED FOR AFFORDABLE AND ACCESSIBLE HEALTH CARE
When weak areas of Montana’s health care coverage options were discovered, Steve passed a package of health bills into law that would support all Montanans. This ensured access to vital mental health treatment, supported the healthcare of tribal communities, lowered insurance premiums by 9% and lowered the cost of life-saving prescriptions.
STEVE EXPANDED MEDICAID COVERAGE
Steve reauthorized a medicaid expansion as governor that preserved health care for 1 in 10 Montanans, ensuring working families and rural communities could access the physical and mental health care they needed. This expansion also secured thousands of jobs and boosted the state’s economy.
STEVE FUNDED JOB TRAINING PROGRAMS
Steve has advocated for apprenticeship and job training programs throughout his entire career. He worked with the Montana Legislature to create a tax incentive for businesses offering on-the-job training to Montanans and Veterans, increasing jobs and training workers for high-demand fields.
Steve has fought to ensure working families are supported, paid fairly and can thrive. We need someone like Steve in our corner, that’s why the UAW endorses Steve Bullock for the U.S. Senate.
