BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Eager Montana university scientists and researchers who submitted proposals to use the $15 million set aside by the 2015 Legislature for research should start hearing if they made the cut next week.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1J1J2Vm ) that the date for announcing winning proposals was originally July 1, but Deputy Commissioner of Higher Education for Planning and Analysis Tyler Trevor says they are taking more time to double-check projects.

The legislature usually earmarks a few million dollars to support research, but never as much as Gov. Steve Bullock proposed and state lawmakers passed this year.

The legislature agreed to fund research into Montana job creation, important sectors of state economy such as agriculture, natural resources, manufacturing or health and biomedicine, and into solving Montana-specific problems.
