KALISPELL — U.S. Attorney General William Barr will soon visit Montana to not only discuss how meth is impacting the state, but to talk about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons.

On Friday, Barr will address missing and murdered Indigenous people and meth trafficking with tribal leaders and local law enforcement at Salish Kootenai College.

He will then participate in a roundtable discussion about the meth crisis hosted by Senator Steve Daines in Kalispell.

Barr and Daines will be joined by Flathead County Sheriff, Kalispell police, the Northwest Drug Task Force and U-s Marshall Rod Ostermiller among other law enforcement agencies from Northwest Montana.

Earlier this year, Daines brought Vice President Mike Pence to Montana to see the crisis firsthand.
