  • icon_03Legislative ActivitiesMSVFFA, as part of the Montana Fire Alliance, has cooperated with the other MFA members in hiring John Semple as a lobbyist for our legislative sessions. It is important that that we have a presence in the Capitol so that we can have a positive role in the formation of legislation that is favorable to volunteer fire departments across Montana. Our legislative sessions have been successful in the past.
