HELENA, Mont. — About 120 of the state’s 150 legislators gathered Monday in Helena for Legislative Week.

Lawmakers have scheduled several interim committee meetings this week in what they describe as a way of trying out meeting every year, the Great Falls Tribune reported.

The Montana Legislature now meets in a 90-day session every other year, but a bill passed last year asks lawmakers to consider changing that to annual 45-day sessions.

About two dozen meetings are planned this week, including training sessions and a dinner for legislators.
