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.
