New Ambassador?

HELENA – Montana Governor Steve Bullock released the following statement after U.S. Senator Max Baucus was nominated to become ambassador to China:

“Max has dedicated his life to public service and the notion that, through hard work, he could make Montana an even greater place – something I first got to see as a high school student visiting his office. From helping create the Children’s Health Insurance Program to beating back attempts to privatize Social Security, Max has always put Montanans first. I thank him for his service to our state and wish him the best of luck with his new responsibility, representing our country overseas.”

Baucus’ nomination will now proceed through the prescribed confirmation process in the U.S. Senate.
