Sen. Max Baucus, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, is one of twelve members of the so-called "super committee" charged with finding ways to cut $1.2 trillion (that's $1,000,000,000,000) in federal government spending.

The Senator issued a press release the other day asking Montanans for ideas..."innovative ideas with practical approaches that could realistically be brought to the table and implemented", to quote him.

So, my fellow Montanans, let's do it.  A few thousand dollars here, a million there, and it adds up. You can email your suggestion here (Sen. Baucus's website) or mail your suggestions to: 

Sen Max Baucus, 113 3rd St N, Great Falls MT 59401.
