Democratic nominee Steve Bullock is promising to give Montana homeowners a one-time, $100 million property tax rebate if he is elected governor this fall.
Bullock kicked off the general election campaign Monday with a news conference on Helena's Last Chance Gulch. Flanked by running mate John Walsh, the attorney general outlined the program that would give $400 to each homeowner with a primary residence in the state.
Bullock says the rebate would be a one-time program meant to create jobs and spur spending.
The program would be similar to the one that Gov. Brian Schweitzer implemented in 2007.
Bullock faces former Congressman Rick Hill in the Nov. 6 general election. Hill's campaign did not have an immediate comment on Monday.
