Status of Marsy's Law in Montana
After collecting over 50,000 signatures of support from Montanans, the Marsy’s Law for Montana team, led by Chuck Denowh, participated in events across the entire state, spoke to more than fifty groups, and received over 100 endorsements, including that of U.S. Senator Steve Daines.
With consistently strong public support, Marsy’s Law for Montana received an overwhelming 66% of the vote and was passed by voters on November 8, 2016.
Every day, across our country people suffer at the hands of criminals. Then they suffer again – as victims, thrust into the complex judicial system and to navigate an unfamiliar court
process. Marsy’s Law proposes a Constitutional Amendment securing permanent, enforceable rights of victims, but we need your help to move forward.
