Sen. Baucus Announces Next Economic Summit Will Be in Butte

BUTTE -

Senator Max Baucus is likely heading to China in the near future, but he's not forgetting about his Montana roots.

He announced this evening a seventh Montana Economic Development Summit will be held at Montana Tech in Butte.

Senator Baucus spoke at Tech Friday evening as part of what will most likely be his last tour through the state as a U.S. senator.

He is expected to be approved as the new U.S. Ambassador to China, but Friday he was more excited to announce the economic summit would be back in the Mining City.

"Butte people have such heart, and soul, and spunk," said Senator Baucus. "Butte is a can-do city. They just get things done. Tech goes all out for these summits. It's tradition. People know where they are, they know it's in Butte. People know what it's all about. We're just going to build on what we have."

Senator Baucus along with representatives of Butte-Silver Bow and Montana Tech signed an agreement saying the summit will be in Butte next time around.

The senator says he hopes to help with finding and bringing in more well-known C.E.O.'s.
