umjschoolThree #MontanaJournalism students have partnered with @NPR to collect the positions of each Member of Congress regarding the overhaul of the healthcare system. News organizations are gathering this information to provide a public resource so people can see where their representatives stand on the issue.
Clare Menehan and Nate Hegyi are MTPR reporters. MTPR will also publish the results of the NPR project. The third student involved in the project, Zachariah Bryan, is a grad student.
This project is based on a similar undertaking published last month. Reporters from 58 organizations gathered information about President Trump's initial travel ban. Read more about the project on our Facebook page.
J-School Dean Larry Abramson said #NPR is performing a great public service with this project. “We’re flattered to be a part of it. Projects like this also show the power of UM’s relationship with Montana Public Radio, which is sharing the work and will be covering the health care debate as it heats up nationwide, and of course in Montana.”
