This foreword to the 2012 Browning Symposium contributes to the discussion of republican forms of government in the states by situating Montana's experience in broader themes of federal intervention in state republicanism. It serves as an epilogue to match Jeff Wiltse's prologue, which reexamines the election in 1912 that gave birth to the Corrupt Practices Act by examining the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court's burial of that law 100 years later.
Part I of the foreword considers the recent federal constitutional challenges that dismantled elements of the republican form of government that prevailed in Montana for the past century. Part II considers Montana's response to the federal constitutional challenges.
