Newly appointed Fish, Wildlife and Parks director Martha Williams has stepped into a quickly escalating attempt to fight aquatic invasive species in Montana. On Tuesday Williams said she would be the point person for the Legislature in the fight against AIS after asking a subcommittee to approve $11.5 million in expenditures over the next two years to fund the battle. The sad part is that means the state is essentially committing to about $5.5 million annually – forever – to keep invasive species in check, since there’s no known way to eradicate things like zebra mussels once they invade. Part of that funding would come from a $25 sticker required for all resident boats in Montana, $50 for nonresidents.
