Supreme Court Proposes New Financial Disclosures
High court would follow same financial disclosure rules as other elected officials
HELENA – The Montana Supreme Court is proposing that justices and candidates for the high court follow the same financial disclosure rules as other elected officials.

The Jan. 2 proposal signed by Chief Justice Mike McGrath comes a month after a report by the Center for Public Integrity listed Montana as one of three states that don't require justices to disclose their financial interests.

The proposal calls on justices and candidates to follow an existing law requiring other state officeholders to file disclosures to the commissioner of political practices.

The statements include the individual's past and present employers that currently provide benefits, any business interests, entities the individual is an officer or director of and any property that is not a personal residence.

The court is taking public comment on the proposal.
