A loose-knit, ever-evolving group of Republican legislators is making waves and causing headaches in the 66th Montana Legislature.

They call themselves the “solutions caucus.”

It’s not a traditional caucus by any means: No barriers to entry, no specified leaders, nor a roster. Simply put, it’s a group of legislators who meet informally and talk about issues. They’ve branded themselves as independent, realistic thinkers in an environment that often feels deeply divided along party lines.

Just two weeks after a U.S. Senate hearing on missing and murdered indigenous women, the body of 14-year-old Henny Scott was found on the Northern Cheyenne reservation in southeastern Montana.

She was one of countless indigenous women and girls who have gone missing in cities and rural communities across the United States and Canada. Many have not been found.

Henny Scott's body was found late last month, about three weeks after her mother last spoke with her.

On Saturday, her family held a funeral on the reservation.
