Baucus: "Thank You, Montana"

WASHINGTON, D.C. -

In his farewell statement from the Senate floor Thursday, Montana Senator Max Baucus thanked the people of Montana for the honor of representing them for nearly 40 years.

The U.S. Senate voted to confirm him to serve the nation as Ambassador to the People's Republic of China. 

In the statement, Baucus shared anecdotes on how working friendships have paved the way to some of his most important policy achievements. He also highlighted two life-saving pieces of legislation he found most meaningful in spearheading: expanded PTSD screenings for all members of the military and the Affordable Care Act.
