U.S. Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) and ranking member of the U.S. Senate Finance committee announced he is traveling to Cuba September 11-12 with a delegation of constituents to discuss trade opportunities for US Food and Healthcare businesses in Cuba and travel issues. Senator Baucus is one of the chief sponsors of the Free Trade with Cuba Act of 2003 now pending in Congress. Discussions are underway to link this trip with the Senator’s and participate with him during part of his visit. However, Senator Baucus’ trip to Cuba is independent of this particular excursion.
