The Montana House of Representatives is, with the Montana Senate, one of the two houses of the Montana Legislature. Composed of 100 members, the House elects its leadership every two years. [1]

In the event that the parties have a tie in number of members, the speaker and other officers are elected from the party who holds the governor's office. Thus, during the 61st legislature from 2007-2009, the Montana Democratic Party led the tied legislature as a result of the victory of Democrat Brian Schweitzer in the 2004 election. [2]
