Last year the city of Missoula had 324 violent crimes, an increase of nearly 50 percent since 2011. Law enforcement say the meth epidemic is to blame, and Thursday announced that they’re addressing it with a local, state and federal partnership.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Montana wants the state’s top elected officials to shield Montanans from aggressive federal immigration policy.

ACLU wants Montana’s Governor Steve Bullock, Attorney General Tim Fox and its entire congressional delegation to stem what it says are immigration-related human rights violations happening right here in Montana.

President Donald Trump stumped in Great Falls Thursday afternoon hitting on the highlights of his first year and half in office and, once in a while, railing against Montana Democratic Senator Jon Tester.

There were lots of thumbs ups, ‘Make America Great Again’ hats, shirts, and banners. The occasional Q-anon reference, and other signs or gear reading ‘Drain The Swamp’, ‘Trump - Pence’, ‘Women For Trump’ and, in preparation for the run in 2020, ‘Keep America Great.’

A United States Supreme Court ruling issued Thursday means Montana businesses may have to start collecting a sales tax when they sell their products online.

The order from the Supreme Court strikes down previous rules that said states could not collect sales tax from a business if that business did not have a physical presence in the state.
