A bill(SB0130) has been introduced in the Montana senate to revitalize it's state militia. http://leg.mt.gov/bills/2015/billpdf/SB0130.pdf It's fairly long, but one thing of interest: "A home guard company may be established as provided in [section 25] and may be formed as an infantry company, medical company, transportation company, heavy equipment company, construction company,forestry company, police company,environmental company, signal company, scout company, cavalry company,supply company, specialty company, general service company, or another type of company. A mixed company may be formed of specialized platoons or squads of the types listed in this subsection." "A home guard company must be commanded by a captain commissioned by the governor. The company captain is responsible for selecting and commissioning the company's officers and for recruiting, training, mustering,equipping, assigning, and promoting company members. The company captain may dismiss or demote company members or administer lesser disciplinary measures." IMO, not a perfect bill, but it is big step in the right direction. Hopefully any forum member who live there and support the 2nd will contact their leg members. FWIW. This bill is similar to one that pass in one house there a couple of years ago. This one is better. Note that the don't use the word militia.
