Abstract

This past spring, many of Montana's politicians and legislators employed an unsavory 'cram-down' approach to ensure that the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) Water Compact the State, Federal and Tribal Governments entered into was enacted into State law, over the expressed protest and objections of Montana’s citizens, especially those living on or downstream from the Flathead Indian Reservation. The legislative approach utilized reveals that these public officials, like the current presidential administration, have rejected the Enlightenment-era foundations (political, social, economic, scientific, philosophical and legal) of our great nation that have successfully defended our natural rights-based individualism and freedoms, especially private property, for more than 239 years. This article describes a host of actionable procedural and substantive law violations and irregularities surrounding the CSKT Water Compact’s execution by State, Federal and Tribal Government officials that warrant close public inspection before Congress decides whether to ratify the CSKT Compact in fulfillment of its obligation under the Compact Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
