HELENA (AP) — Gov.-elect Steve Bullock has filled two more cabinet posts as he prepares to take office next month.
Bullock says outgoing Montana Highway Patrol director Mike Tooley will take over as the new head of the Montana Department of Transportation. The two worked together during Bullock's tenure as attorney general.
The incoming governor says John Tubbs of Helena will lead the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation. Tubbs previously worked at the DNRC and most recently was a deputy at the U.S. Department of the Interior.
Bullock, a Democrat, is replacing current Gov. Brian Schweitzer after defeating Republican Rick Hill in last month's election. Bullock has named about half of his cabinet.
