Montana House District 71 Representative Kenneth Walsh, R-Twin Bridges, began his first Montana State Legislature session inside the Montana capitol this year. House District 71 encompasses Madison County and parts of Silver Bow and Jefferson Counties.
Walking into the Montana House of Representatives Chamber, one steps through an aisle in the center and looks towards a Charlie Russell painting. Democrat representatives sit on the right, if you are facing the painting, and Republicans on the left.
Representative Ray Shaw described the aisle in between as Montana.
