The company is building a $60 million barley-malting plant just north of the Missouri River near Great Falls. Labor officials have criticized the company for hiring Bulgarian welders to work on plant construction and for not hiring enough Montana workers.

IMC is getting a $33 million loan from the state and will be exempt from paying property taxes on a large portion of the plant, which is expected to be finished in June 2005. There is economic development, but theres also giving away the farm, Driscoll said Wednesday. Most of our members are sportsmen. (The state) is giving away the most pristine water in the state, that could be put into the (Giant Springs) fish hatchery and have a better hatchery. The lawsuit names as defendants the state Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission, which approved the water lease, and the department, which negotiated the lease.

Under terms of the lease, IMC will pay $280,000 a year to use state infrastructure at Giant Springs and up to 1,200 gallons per minute of water. Selected calls to the city-county 911 center from 6:02 a.m. July 14 to 5:53 a.m. July 15. Non-injury accidents Date: July 14 11:34 a.m.

Valley and York Date: July 15 12:36 a.m. Birch and National HELENA (AP) Two labor groups and a state lawmaker are asking a judge to void the states agreement to lease water from Giant Springs to a new malting plant near Great Falls. The state AFL-CIO, the Montana State Building and Construction Trades Council and state Rep. Jim Keane, D-Butte, have filed suit against the state, claiming it mishandled the waterleasing process and is not charging enough money for the water. The lawsuit in state District Court seeks a court order requiring the June 10 lease agreement to be set aside and reopened for bidding.

He said the state had budgeted about $3.5 million for utility costs in its buildings for the two years ending June 30, 2005. Electric and gas costs already are $200,000 over budget, he said. The problem will get worse in the coming year because a new gas-purchase agreement will mean an 89 percent jump in rates for the state.

Bender said cutting back on electricity use now will save money for when gas use spikes during winter. The darkened Capitol is the most obvious sign of the conservation effort. Some tourists have wondered about the gloomy interior. Weve tried to leave enough lighting to see your way around, Eicholtz said.
