"Live each day with courage." "Always finish what you start." These are just a few principles that could soon be the law of the land in Montana.
Based on the 10-point cowboy code pulled from the book Cowboy Ethics by James P. Owen, the "Code of the West" is the brainchild of Jim Peterson, Montana Senate President (R-Buffalo).
He lassoed the approval of the Montana Senate on Monday but has a few more hurdles to jump before the code becomes law.
Governor Brian Schweitzer warns it faces his veto because he won't sign frivolous bills.
