In an interview Friday, Senior Senator Max Baucus comments on Republican Congressman Dennis Rehberg’s statement that the Debt Reduction Committee meetings should be open to the public.


Under the committees’ rules the meetings can be closed to the public following a majority vote. Baucus also comments on the difficulty Congress may have passing a deal set by the committee.

Baucus says he hopes that the committee will reach a deal that is balance and fair by the deadline. If you would like to pass along your suggestions to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction on how to reduce our nation's deficit visit their website at
