There are many challenges facing Montanans during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Safety for all Montanans is vital for moving the state forward. Increasing the COVID-19 testing abilities and capabilities of health departments to provide mass vaccinations when one becomes available. Opening up channels of funding to local laboratories and hiring of additional health care workers. Increasing access to remote mental health services statewide. Once health and safety needs are met we can move onto strengthening the state's economy, increase the state's minimum wage, addressing local transportation challenges, increase affordable housing options, and retaining our public lands. Achievement through partnerships and reallocation of the state's budget.
The ultimate goal is transitioning Montana to only clean, renewable energy. This is an important issue for our youth and future generations. Strengthening our state's EPA regulations and allow incentives for businesses, homeowners, public/private transportation to convert from dependence on fossil fuels. The increase in technological advancements with varying accesses to renewable energy sources will allow us to be more creative. Increase production from local businesses will help alleviate overall costs making it a contender with traditional energy sources. Ultimately a cultural shift can occur when a more accessible and cheaper alternative energy is made available for public consumption. Everyone benefits from a cleaner environment.
Women should be encouraged to have a bigger voice within their respective communities and government. Better access to women's healthcare, especially on reservations and rural areas. Equality should be a right for ALL Montanans.
Additional funding should be allocated towards equitable education. Primarily focusing on rural areas throughout the state. The public education system is in dire need for higher teacher wages. Most of our children rely heavily on schools to provide a healthy, suitable, and safe environment. Investment in our future generations is a must.
Every Montanan has a right to affordable healthcare. This would stop medical bankruptcy and improve public health. We need to improve the efficiencies of each current health care systems and try to streamline them into something that work. These are the Veterans, Indian Health, Medicare, Medicaid, Blue-chip, private insurance, Workmen's comp, Disability, and Community Health Systems. A sliding scale would benefit all based on income within each system. A thorough analysis of each system through a committee would also aid solutions for affordable healthcare.
