Investment in higher education is a hot topic across the country and in Montana especially. Every ten years since 1948 Montanans vote on a ballot measure called the 6-mill levy, which represents a substantial funding mechanism for the state’s university system. The 6-mil levy returns to the ballot this November. In this special episode, we present the viewpoints of Senator Jon Tester (D), Congressman Greg Gianforte (R), and UM Bureau of Business and Economic Research economist Bryce Ward. Each presents a different perspective on the value of higher education and offers some thoughts on the 6-mill levy.
