Sen. Max Baucus said on Monday that his bipartisan effort to reform the nation's tax code helped attract some of the business world's biggest names to Montana for a conference on developing jobs.

Baucus opened the Montana Jobs Summit in Butte — an old mining town almost a century removed from its heydays — with the leaders of companies such as Google, Facebook, Ford and Boeing.

Baucus, a veteran Democrat, told reporters that he was discussing his longshot bipartisan effort to revamp the tax code with the corporate leaders. Baucus and Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., are trying to build on sentiment inside and outside of Congress that the tax code is too complicated for individuals and too onerous for businesses.
