Ted Schwinden was known as a hands-on governor during his reign from 1980-1988.
Schwinden's terms were marked by wrenching budget and service cuts as the state's natural resource economy and tax structure underwent steep declines.
Schwinden was helping coordinate the rush of firefighters and equipment to the blaze, and yes, the homeowners were allowed to use the road.

If only Montana slashed its Coal Severance Tax in half, reasoned Schwinden, we would be more competitive with Wyoming coal and create such an upsurge in coal production that the tax cut would be more than offset by the increased tonnage and the new jobs it would create.
As we now know, Schwinden’s plan reduced revenues for both the Coal Trust Fund and the general government budget, but somehow it failed to produce the predicted tidal wave of new jobs, increased production, and revenue.
Unfortunately, Schwinden’s bad idea didn’t end when he left the governor’s office to be replaced by Republican Stan Stephens in 1989.

After a 20-year shut-out, the Republicans took occupancy of the governor’s office in 1989 when former state Senator Stan Stephens beat Tom Judge, a recycled Demo governor from the ’70s, in a race that lacked even a scintilla of excitement.
Stephens took over from outgoing Gov. Ted Schwinden, whose second term was marked by the state’s violent fiscal thrashings, exacerbated by President Ronald Reagan’s massive trillion-dollar Cold War deficits.
Although a rather unremarkable governor, Schwinden probably set an all-time record for calling special legislative sessions to balance the budget and, in so doing, set another all-time record for ripping off every pot of money the state had managed to set aside, including beggaring the education trust fund.
