Keynote Speaker - Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer

On November 2, 2004 Brian was elected as Montana's first Democratic governor since 1988. Brian Schweitzer became the 23rd Governor of the great state of Montana on January 3, 2005.

Some of Governor Schweitzer Initiatives include:

Insure Montana: A Health Insurance Program for Small Businesses - Governor Schweitzer called for and signed into law a program creating a purchasing pool allowing small businesses to band together to negotiate and purchase affordable health insurance for their employees.

20 x 10: Energy efficiency in state government - A twenty percent reduction in facility energy requirements by executive branch agencies, by the end of 2010. Reductions will be sought in electricity, natural gas, propane and fuel oil use.

Making synthetic petroleum out of coal, while capturing and sequestering greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide - The proposal has received national attention. It was featured in the NY Times, Washington Post and LA Times, and he has been a repeat guest CNBC's Kudlow and Company and CNN's Lou Dobbs. His national energy ideas were the subject of a feature-length story by Leslie Stahl on CBS's 60 Minutes in 2006.

Incentives for bio-fuel and wind-energy production; an historic increase in public education spending along with a balanced budget and no new taxes; and stronger protection of public lands for hunting, fishing and camping.

John Bohlinger, a Republican, small business owner, and former member of both the Montana House and Senate was picked by Schweitzer as his Lt. Governor.
