Montana governor giving first-quarter salary to drug treatment facility
Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte (R) announced Wednesday that he'll donate the first quarter of his salary to One Health Bighorn, a facility that treats people for substance abuse.
The big picture: The multimillionaire has pledged to give his entire salary, about $120,000, to nonprofits. "We face a drug epidemic in our state, and while there's no silver bullet to end it, we can combat it by promoting treatment and recovery for Montanans struggling with addiction," Gianforte said in a statement, per AP.
