Powerful mesothelioma advocate Sen. Max Baucus of Montana will be leaving his office in 2014. In a speech given on April 24, the 71-year-old announced that he would not run for reelection next year. Baucus has served in the Senate for 37 years and has been a longtime proponent for asbestos victims during that time. He has been a tireless advocate for the victims of the asbestos exposure in Libby, Montana, where he pushed W.R. Grace and Co. to have an asbestos contaminated mine closed.
Earlier this year Baucus scolded the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for its backlog of cases. He believes CMS is to blame for delayed efforts in helping asbestos victims and people with mesothelioma cancer.
