A dozen counties in Montana have created the Big Sky Passenger Rail Authority in an effort to bring passenger rail service to the state.

A finalized joint resolution by the counties allows one representative from each of the counties to serve on the authority.

One of the county commissioners has publicly stated that he hopes the authority will have its first board meeting in December or January.

Gallatin County was the first to approve joining the authority in late July, while Powell County was the latest (Nov. 18).

The counties which have joined the authority are Broadwater, Butte-Silver Bow, Dawson, Gallatin, Granite, Jefferson, Missoula, Park, Powell, Prairie, Sanders and Wibaux.
