(GREAT FALLS) On Tuesday, about two dozen people held a rally against the tax reform bill that was recently approved by the U.S. Senate.

The group "Great Falls Rising" hosted the gathering outside of the office of U.S. Representative Greg Gianforte (R-MT) on Central Avenue.

Great Falls Rising coordinator Gerry Jennings say it is important for them to be heard on the issues that matter to them.

Jennings said, "So many people have lost hope. So many people do not know where to turn. What we have tried to do here is to give people a gathering place and a place where they can air their thoughts. What we try pursue is recommendations for the future. What do you want the future to look like and what will you do to get there?"

The group also focused on healthcare reform, public lands, and net neutrality, holding up signs and chanting together.

Travis Hall, a spokesman for Gianforte, said in a press release: “Greg voted to let hardworking Montanans keep more of what they earn. The bill Greg voted for will create nearly 2,900 new Montana jobs and raise after-tax income for middle class families by nearly $2,200. Greg will continue supporting tax reform that creates Montana jobs, cuts taxes for low- and middle-income Montanans, and helps our small businesses grow and thrive.”
